Default Question about stoneflies

I have another question, and this one is about stoneflies.

According to my Sierra Nevada Hatch Chart, stoneflies (little brown ones) hatch from Jan to March on the Truckee. I have seen BWOs on the river (Baetis?) and done well dry fly fishing when this hatch went off, but from what I can find on stoneflies is they don't spend a lot of time on the water in the adult stage, so I am wondering if for stone flies, if I were going to try and tie some up, which would be better:

The nymph or the adult?

and

Does anyone have a recommended (not to difficult) pattern for each of these stages?

Thanks for any help/advice.
