Some Must have Spey Books
 Beginning Fly Fishing: 
   While there are many great Fly Fishing Books for Beginners Fidalgo Fly Fishers
   recommend the following two books as starter books because of their approach
   to Fly Fishing and the completness of content. These books are no substitute
   for The Fidalgo fly Fishing course offered by the Skagit Valley Comunity College.
   The Orvis Fly Fishing Guide, (Competely Revised and Updated) by Rosenbauer,
   Tom 2007. The Orvis Company. Printed by Lyons Press, Guilford, Connecticut.
   246 pp.
   The L.L. Bean Ultimate Book of Fly Fishing in Paperback
   by Macauley Lord, Dick Talleur, and Dave Whitlock.
   Beginning Fly Tying:
   The better way to learn how to tie flies is to attend a class or to carefully
   watch tiers at sport shows or club meetings and ask questions. The latter process
   usually does not get you involved with the basics because the tier is probably
   creating an advanced style.
   If you are unable to attend a class, there have been numerous books printed
   over the years where the author tried to create the necessary explanations for
   Fly Tying Made Clear and Simple by Skip Morris, A Frank Amato 1992 original publication now in its 23rd printing, is a good beginners book if you can not attend a fly tying class.

   Fly Patterns for Stillwaters by Philip Rowley.
   Philip Rowley begins with a season by season analysis of the diet of trout found
   in stillwater in BC and the northwestern US. Taking each of the major categories
   (chironomids, scuds, damselflies, dragonflies, leeches, mayflies, caddisflies,
   water boatmen, and "hodgepodge") in turn, he describes its life cycle and gives his thoughts on pattern design.
   For each category, he illustrates five to twelve flies that he has found to
   be effective imitations, gives step by step tying instructions, and explains
   how best to fish each fly. The photographs of the natural insects are excellent.
   The tying instructions are clear and well illustrated. Many of the patterns
   are original with Mr. Rowley and all can be tied by tiers of any skill level.
