Single rig:
Use a woolly bugger (black, brown, olive or white) or sucker spawn (white or cream) for the stockies. Other good producing flies are maggot cluster, pheasant tail, hare's ear, prince nymph. I don't fish many deep long runs which tandem rigs really need. Pay attention to the drift and make sure your line isn't pulling the flies through the drift . . . keep mending your line. I think drift is more important the fly choice in most situations.

easiest setup to fish is either a copperjohn,haresear,prince or phesanttail or any other nymph under an indicator or without if you prefer.
highstick nymphing simple and effective.

All of the above. I also think single fly is best with appropriate tippet size depending on water conditions.
