Default Fly assortment suggestions for beginner

I have yet to go out and buy my first fly, as I have just recieved my flyrod a day or two ago. I was wondering what your suggestions would be, for a small starter kit to get me going? I have a 6 wt. and most of the time will be fishing bass, panfish, and trout occassionally (when I can get off work long enough!) Majority will be lake and pond fishing with occasional river mixed in and even more seldom, streams. I didn't want to go out, get carried away and come home with a thousand flys I can't yet tell apart, lol, and prefer to keep things simple until I get all the basics down. Appreciate the info, advice and tips!

The Best Buy in Fly Fishing is Orvis' annual come-on ... For $9.95 you will receive 8 weighted Nymphs (all proven patterns), a fleece-lined wallet, a booklet on how to fish them, an Orvis catalog, and a $10.00 gift certificate redeemable on your first order.

Ordered individually, these flies would cost you twice as much...

Do they work? You betcha!

The Full Creel can make the same offer www.thefullcreel.com. The Full Creel uses a fly box, which is a little more practical than a fly wallet. The Full Creel will also give you your choice of nymphs, dries or streamer flies. You'll also get the instrction booklet and a 10% discount voucher.

Mike's list is a pretty good choice for a beginning collection.

Wooly Buggers & wooly worms
Leeches
Pheasant tail nymphs
Hairs Ear Nymphs
poppers
Royal Wolf / Adams / Black Knats

Thanks. Appreciate the list Mike and I am sure I will be placing some orders soon with the Full Creel. What sizes should I be looking at with my 6 wt rod? Min. - Max. would be nice if you don't mind handing out some more advice. I know I am full of questions, but one day I hope to be on here answering some questions myself!
