    Does anyone have a good entomology book or website that they use? I know there are several out there (books). I was wondering which one's you liked the best?

    Trout and Their Food, by Dave Whitlock is the book that was given to me when I first got into fly fishing.

    general books are good, but you should also look for regional books to based on where you primarily fish.

    Dave Hughes' Handbook of Hatches. Its simple to the point and isn't filled with alot of scientific jargon or an overload of Latin.

    I am currently reading this one and I think it's brilliant. It's very enjoyable to read as well as being highly informative.

    I had the opportunity to hear Rick Hafele talk. He's from the Northwest so he tends to focus on the Western US. Here's a link to his website.
