    Makes one wonder if, when our creeks, streams and rivers were loaded with the stuff, if caddis homes of days gone by occasionally glistened? ;)

    Wouldn't know about gold but... over the years on the St. Joe and some other creeks in the region, I've seen a fair number of caddis trundling around with garnet cases. Well, partially garnet anyway. The North Idaho, macro-invertebrate version of "pimp your R.V."

    I saw them on Facebook I think. They were making pins out of them.
