The origins of flies of the day are given good reviews by fisherman in the US and Canada, various bodies of water that these flies will catch fish. Names of the fly dresser's that have created these works of art.Good reference for those who wanted to know where that fly originated.And of course a few fishing stories. Good winter read waiting for snow to melt and spring to happen.

An older but excellent compilation of information about fly fishing flies and how to use them. Superb color plates of flies. A great history of flies at the turn of the century.

A must for scholarly fly tiers and fishers
Mary Orvis Marbury's book is the place to start in studying flies and fly tying. (Unless, of course, you are really into the British tradition, in which case you need a few of the earlier British tomes.)
