I would pick up a copy of this:
http://www.amazon.com/Orvis-Fly-Tying ... -Rosenbauer/dp/1592281214

It has a beginner friendly variation of most major fly types, and is what got me started. I would be happy to loan you my copy, but it's already on loan.

I'd recommend hares ear, walt's worm, pheasant tail, and some caddis larvae.

Here is a great book for beginners. It starts out with basic flies and progresses to more difficult ones.

Essential Trout Flies by Dave Hughes is another good book to get you started. Heck, I still look at it quite ofter for new ideas, etc...
