Try this link

It has a chart for insects that are hatching in Indiana by month and the fly that matches them. They are selling the flies there but you can look at the patterns and tie them (or reasonable imitations) yourself.

Have fun. My advice? Concentrate on not scaring the fish (approaching the water and during casting) and in presenting the fly the way a natural insect would look to the trout and worry less about the exact type of fly you have.

Most of what is sold and used for fly tying are the tail feathers. I think their neck and chest feathers would be quite usefull too. Hmm, wings might be too.

she mainly grabbed tail feathers this time. did get some gorgeus wing feathers light golden brown. and got some light feathers look like maybe from leading edges of the wings not sure. she asked if those were the ones that i wanted and i told her that i'd take anything that she had.
