The Southern Wisconsin Chapter of TU is giving a free beginner's course in fly tying. The course guide is an excellent free guide for beginners with a pattern list of basic flies. They also have a list of basic tools and materials. Since the course provides all fly materials, there is no list of basic pattern materials other than thread. These PDFs will be up for a short time. I suggest that anyone interested in fly tying download the PDFs.
