for what it is worth, tower hill pond in Candia is paved with these things. Haven't been able to figure out how to fish them in still water, but if you can master it..... you'll be rewarded.

I've used one similar to this, along with a few others, and never had much luck with them. I have tied a smaller one with spun antelope for the body, (nice mottled effect), as well. I used them in streams where they are common, with very little success. The trout do eat them, for sure, but I think they pick most of them off the bottom, rather than grabbing them on the drift. The pebble cased caddis, (that's what the antelope pattern imitates), is extremely hard to remove from the rock it is attached to. I wouldn't think trout see many of these drifting in the current.
I have absolutely no clue how you would fish it in a stillwater.
I was really only kidding about the stillwater thing... Those cases are so "glued' to rocks, that it took everything I had to pop one off. Although a little white worm is effective ;)
hard to get a spun hair nymph to sink, but it certainly looks cool.
