"Trout Flies- The Tier's Reference" by Dave Hughes is the definitive work for trout fishermen who tie flies. A step-by-step reference for tying nearly 500 patterns that will take trout everywhere, in all conditions. 

Dave Hughes is an accomplished fly tyer and a student of entomology, but he is a fly fisherman first, and one with a gift: the ability to organize and explain in clear, readable language what can be a bewilderingly complex subject. It follows that his master work is aimed at fishermen who want their fly tying to support their fishing, and not the other way around.

Hughes's systematic approach to tying evolved from a lifelong study of trout food forms and vast experience on the water. Dave Hughes understands trout and their prey. And that is the heart of the difference between this book and the countless others on fly tying: Trout Flies: The Tier's Reference is organized around a close look at food forms and the pattern styles that match them.

"What's important is that you have a sound understanding of the concepts of fly pattern styles.....If you think only in terms of individual fly patterns, your thinking and your fly boxes are both going to become tangled."

Tying instructions for the most useful or most used patterns in each style are presented in step-by-step color photos and detailed captions are followed by the pattern's most useful variations. The patterns are divided into two main groups: searching flies, for those times when trout are feeding non-selectively, and imitative flies, when trout are taking a specific food form and nothing else.

A concise guide to tying techniques, tools and materials is presented in the opening section, along with Hughes's extraordinarily lucid "Unified Theory of Trout Flies".
