    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.

    I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.

    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.
