@416841828773541 just turn the stones in the river and look for those houses. Let it dry and then give it a little bit of UV-Laque. I‘ll give it a try when I tied some up

@PietervanStaden and Raimund. I can offer an easier solution to the stone case building caddis rather than collecting the actual cases, drying them out, cementing them to hooks, and UV coating. Check out a post I made here called Peeking Caddis and see the top row. All you need do is collect a little river sand/stone on your next trip. No hunting for the actual insects themselves. Then just build an underbody with whatever you like, coat the underbody with superglue and roll it in the sand. There you go, a cased caddis! Add the peeking part if you like and a turn of soft hackle. They work great. One added advantage to this way is you can add weight if desired to hook before building underbody.

Did this before, but it won’t fit that good... the other one is a burned feather quill

Guys, try a hobby shop and look for model train ballast, the stuff the model train guys put under their tracks. You can get ultra fine stones in different colours. They are lightweight as well so you can still control the weight of your fly with lead free wire. Cheers
