Default Tying help.

Is there a good website that shows different kind of stages of insects, specifically to help the fly tyer? Dry flies, nymphs.

YOUR way is not the ONLY way when tying flies!

Fly tyers can be masters of making things complicated!

You're only limited by lack of imagination. Be creative, experiment.

If there's any books also, it would be great.

Default Re: Tying help.

I had posted this site earlier when after I had visited the shop in Basalt, CO. It is an index to flies in different stages (i.e. Larva, Nymphs, Emergers, Dries). It will give a great reference point of what the fly should look like and then go to "Charlie's Fly Box" web site for a tutorial on tying the pattern.
Enjoy,
Roger
