I'm in with a TBD. Will look over the options out there and see. I need to get on these right away because when Secret Santa hits heavy in mail I'll be a busy guy for a week or so. Pics, sorting, wrapping, exchanging, getting it all together. Plenty to do for sure but caught up right now so can do this one.

 

Okay, I'll do a cased caddis. Lots of versions out there so if someone else does one it should be good to have some variety. Back when I used to fish the streams of northern WI a lot, particularly the Sioux and Little Sioux, and ate a lot of fish from those streams, it always surprised me how many sticks and little sand pebbles I'd find in the bellies. Found out trout would seek out the cased caddis and chow down case and all. Gave 'em good roughage anyway.

You know I'm in, my good man. I hear the roads are safer now that the old rattler is staying home for awhile.👻

My first reaction: NO! Damn it, I knew it was coming, I've been watching for it, and I've missed it. Shit!

My second reaction: Your nicely themed/ colored numbering chart is missing numbers 7 and 11, by deductive reasoning, and using California public school math, I come up with 2 more spots. If my answer is correct, I'M IN for one of them.
