    If you are not sure about the "how to" of tying a certain pattern try Youtube, some nice stuff on there.

    Agreed, for starting out these are probably your best bet, nice simple patterns with clear tying sequences.

    Benchside Intro is very nice for techniques, but I feel it lacks some of the tying sequences required when you are starting out.

    I have all the books mentioned so far in this thread (Hello my name is Eben and I am a book addict...)

    For some high-end books look at the following:

    • Tying Small Flies - Ed Engle (some really interesting simple, micro patterns)
    • Naturals - Gary A. Borger (not so much tying, but the science/reason behind patterns)
    • The Fly Tyer's Benchside Reference to Techniques and Dressing Styles - Jim Schollmeyer, Ted Leeson
    • Tying Emergers - Jim Schollmeyer, Ted Leeson
    • Nymph Fly-Tying Techniques - Jim Schollmeyer
    • Trout Flies: The Tier's Reference - Dave Hughes (if you only buy one book, this is it)
    • Unnaturals - David Klausmeyer
    • Pop Fleyes - Bob Popovics, Ed Jaworski (creative saltwater patterns, speak to Nepps about this one)
    • Clouser's Flies - Bob Clouser (saltwater tying bible)
    • Tying Flies with CDC - Leon Links
    • Tying Foam Flies - Skip Morris (lots of cool things to do with foam)
    • Creative Fly Tying - Mike Mercer
    • Nymph Fly Tying Techniques - Jim Schollmeyer
    • Saltwater Flies: Over 700 of the best - Deke Meyer, Jim Shollmeyer


    Anything by Skip Morris, Dave Hughes or Jim Schollmeyer is worth a look.
