Default beginner fly tying kit

hey
i already know that the standard suggestion is to buy everything seperate
but !!

if you were a beginner and wanted to start with an INEXPENSIVE KIT !!
just to get started say ($40-60 max )

which one would you choose of the kits out there i have materials avalible
locally so just a vice and tools would probably work ok for me for the time being also

in just looking to tie some bluegill and crappie flies and wont use the kit for much else so not looking to go ballistic just yet

the cabelas standard kit looks like it might be ok but anything else out there that might be better ??
also forgot i have a friend who is into it and ties his own so i have access to free lessons and help with materials list so i have that covered
thanks for any info

I got a Cabela's Deluxe tool kit for Christmas. Great starter kit, and they have decent deals on material kits as well. You get a little bit of everything to get started. I will admit though, since getting started I've added considerably more to my materials. I'm hooked...
