Detritus Cased Caddis

I have fished this pattern for many years with success.I first saw it in the mid to late  1970s. 
I tie and fish it with a dubbed head, a metal black bead head and a glass bead head and they all seem to work equally well.
I only wish I could credit the genius who originated this pattern. BUT I have no clue who the originator is!
The only feature added by me is the Peacock Herl.
