Caddisflies, Selective Trout, and Hatches II are good places to start. Beyond that, you'd have to give more detail about what you're looking for.

Perhaps you would find Entomology Bookshelf, an article I wrote for Hatches Magazine, will help you to compare them.
Best regards,

Thanks for the info, I have been tying for many years and have wanted to start learning more when I'm turning over rocks so that I can determine what bugs are what. So any kind of information would work. thanks again.. this is a great site to learn from to..

It's a little out of date (1981), but Aquatic Entomology, by W. P. McCafferty, has some excellent pictures and an easy-to-use key to families.
