PMFlyfisher gave you good advice on fishing terrestrials (insects that live out of the water. When I started out I was given the following simple advice on presentations and fly selection that helped me out.
Fish a nymph like you would an un-weighted worm. Swim a streamer though a pool like you would a spinner. Cast a wet fly a little downstream and across the stream then let it swing around to directly downstream of you. An Adams, pheasant tail nymph or a wooly bugger will catch trout almost anytime of the year. Observe what is flying around on the stream banks before selecting a fly.
