Soft Hackle Glass Bead Caddis

Sort of a green rock worm, sort of a caddis pupae, sort of a caddis emerger, maybe a skunker, maybe a winner.  Hackle is a little long...but who knows.  This is the kind of thing you come up with when you haven't fished in a month and a half because your doctor says wading could spell doom for your newly repaired knee.  Yesterday I casted for nearly an hour on a soccer field.  Desperate times calls for desperate measures.
