Default Recommend Trout Book

I'm thinking about two books:
1. Art Flick- Streamside Guide
2. Swisher/Richards- Selective Trout

Do either of these books tell what nymphs relate to a particular dun pattern?

Do either of these books give tying instructions for said nymphs with photos of the finished fly?

Thanks for any help.

This book is the classic standard on the topic- Amazon.com: Dave Whitlock's Guide to Aquatic Trout Foods: Dave Whitlock: Books

I don't have Selective Trout but I do have Flick's Streamside Guide
There's only a courtesy mention of nymphs... One short chapter

Even though nymphs are much more important in a trout's diet than are the mature flies or spinners, very few fishermen have either the time or inclination to study them.

I'm sure all three mentioned books are good. I don't know where you are, but if you're in the Northeast I'd like to recommend Thomas Ames' Hatch Guide For New England Streams.
