    We've been playing around with the original for a couple years and this is my current version. As a top dropper on the Vaal (imitating a Caddis Pupa) or pretty much any stream with Trout (as an attractor nymph) you will have to go a very long way to find a better pattern.

    Those look awesome
    An honest fisherman is a pretty uninteresting person.

    Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and not only is he hungry but broke for the rest of his life as well.

    A basic GRHE caddis pattern with a flash back.
    A fantastic fly.

    And a hot spot on the ass.

    Take that same design and add a hot orange thread collar and replace the bead with an amber glass bead, the idea of which I shamelessly stole from an article in the TCFF many years ago about an Italian dude which was visiting here, and you end up with "The Casemaker"

    Deadly little fly fished during the pre hatch emergence anywhere from top dropper to point why, depending on where the fish are in the water column.

    The original did not have the hotspot.
    In one of my sample boxes at home, I still have an original.
    Will try and remember to photograph it.
