Default Mayfly Nymphs

I would like to know what everyone's favorite mayfly nymph is. I am always curious on what others use. I need a few new patterns

I mostly dry fly and streamer fish myself. On the rare occasion that I do nymph fish it is usually a prince, hares ear, pheasant tail, or zug bug fished as a dropper off a juicy high floating dry like a hopper, stimi, pmx, or chernobal ant. The old double your fly double your fun theory!!!

I like The Pheasant Tail, Hares Ear, and Prince nymphs. I tie variations of each in different colors, with or without beads or as flashbacks on the first two. Later in the season I do a yellow stonefly or a damselfly nymph.
