Default Flies to get for starters?

I'm new to the sport and recently been buying imitators. At the urging of a fellow angler, I've been told to start picking up some attractors. I've settled on a few classic attractor patterns to start (Adams, Wulff, Hare's Ear, Pheasant Tail) but am now wondering if I need all of the different versions. By that I mean an Adams pattern in the following versions: Dry Dun, Spinners, CDC Parachute, CDC Biot Parachute, Compara-dun, Emergers, Loop wing emerger, Sparkle Dun...all of them are Adams.

Does anyone have any advice on just the versions of these patterns I should start with? Thanks for any of your advice!
