Rich Strolis demonstrates how to tie Case Closed, a cased caddis pattern that works wonders in the spring on freestone rivers such as Rich’s home stream, the Farmington River in Connecticut. This pattern will do the trick on any river where caddisflies are abundant. A great pattern that only uses 3 materials and is featured in Caddisflies: A Guide to Eastern Species by Thomas Ames.
