Nymphing with a Double Fly Rig

I love nymphing pocket water with a strike indicator using the short line, high sticking method. For many years, I used only one nymph but one day, I decided to use two nymphs and have used two for about twenty years or more. Old habits are hard to break.

I have caught a lot of fish using the high sticking method with one fly and I've caught a lot of fish using the high sticking method with two flies but I cannot say I have caught more fish using two flies. Yeah, I know, one fly can be an attractor for the other. I have never caught two fish, one on each fly on the same drift. Now, I will say I have caught trout on one of my two flies then later, with the same flies, I have caught a trout on the other fly and I will say I have had more tangles with two flies - when you're not fishing, you're not fishing.

Can you honestly say, if you use two flies in moving water, you catch more fish?
