Here is a link to a thread in the FAQ section. Read it.

Hopefully you have a well stocked shop with fly tying gear and someone who knows what he is talking about. Don't be afraid to ask what that person uses.

First tie a San Juan Worm. You will learn thread control.

Next tie a Woolly Bugger. That will give you the foundation for a lot of flies.

Yes. I use thread and hooks more than any other material.

Seriously, you will figure this out as you tie more and more. It depends on what you will be tying.
