Default Hook Eyes Up/Down/Straight?

I've been pondering this issue for some time and decided to research this issue, but still not clear on what the real difference makes between hook eye (Up/Down/Straight) I understand dry flies with a hook down floats better but why not hook up or straight. Now nymph flies is straight hook why not up or down. Back in the days it seems to me there wasn’t that much of a preference as today generation tiers. Are we just following the pattern/receipt? Do you think you catch more, less with a hook eye Up/Down/Straight? What is your preference for dry flies & nymph flies and does it really matter?
