    Default Fly Encyclopedia

    I would like to ask for suggestions for a Fly Encyclopedia to add to my collection.

    Are you just looking for 'tied patterns' or the 'how to tie?' Ask as if just what's out there are the 'fly sellers' like Hillsdiscountflies on the Internet. Hundreds of patterns to look at, do a 'hummmm?' and then Google the tie instructions.

    Bye the bye, good folks to buy from. I'm too old/fumbly to putz with anything less than a size 10 hook

    I'm looking at a copy of Dave Hughes' "Trout Flies; the Tier's (I hate it when they don't spell it Tyer's) Reference.

    BIG format, 470 pages of pics, patterns and how-to's. It's a hell of a book. $75 as originally published (hardcover); probly been remaindered by now for less.

    Hughes is good and so is this book.

    I'm a big fan of Dave Hughes works, but I haven't read this one. Amazon has it for under $50, and closer to $40 for the Kindle version.

    His book, Handbook of Hatches does a great job breaking down the different type of insects and matching them to fly patterns without the Latin of the biological classification. Not exactly what the OP was looking for but a great book none the less. Apologies for the threadjack.
