Question Did I get the wrong size flies???

I purchased some flies from Blue Fly Cafe,

Adams #18
Black gnat #18
Blue wing olive Thorax #16
Daves hopper # 10
Hares ear gold rib bead head #18
Pheasant tail nymph # 16
Cased caddis #16

Those 18s are so small. Like microscopic. I dont know what made me get that size. I guess I had the wrong image in my head from some I saw in the store. Are these flies too small. I know I will get more in different sizes sooner or later but these look too small to me. What size does everybody use. I am in south east michigan. going to be fishing clinton river and paint creek too. any advice? I chose those flies based on some stuff I read on this forum fro beginners. thanks for any help.

Oh yeah, Blue Fly Cafe is a great shop. I ordered on monday and they came today, and they were very good with the emails too. very fast service.
