Default Re: Best Nymph

Since I'm a nymph fisherman I tend to use a two fly rig, so in order of preference:

Lead fly:
Bird's stone fly nymph
BH Pheasant Tail
Prince Nymph

Tailer fly:
Green Copper John
soft hackle PT or hares ear
rainbow warrior or brassie

I read where someone mentioned minimalist patterns, has anyone noticed any difference with copper johns w/out legs/hackle? seems like I've had more luck on a plain green copper john with no legs or hackle tied in, than with legs and or hackle. (By legs I mean partridge or PT fibers ties in to mimic legs, not rubber legs).
