Being im on a epoxy kick and seeing alot of caddis around where im fishing, I wanted to see what a epoxy cased caddis would look like and try to tie a fly that closely imitates a cased caddis.

Fishing your hole before you get there
You should play around with some epoxy back golden stones. Also, try playing around with latex (latex gloves) for the body. Use a green underbody and wrap the cut latex over it and use mono or copper wiring for the segmentation-it's sick. When I do epoxy caddis emergers, I'll get sand, twigs etc. and epoxy them to the casing. I then use 10-12 maxima for the legs. Tie the legs in place, get a hot pin or needle and touch it to the center of the leg. The leg bends to a 45 degree angle and looks sweet.

Taking your ideas into consideration i came up with this. extended body made from antron yarn then added zap-a-gap to stiffin up, obviously epoxy with sand and rocks, body is clear tan vinyl rib and legs are ostrich herl.

I have tied a lot of cased caddis. Some of the more simple patterns sometimes fish better.
These are a lot more fun to tie!
Good looking flies though dude!
Check out this company in europe that sells a lot of cool bug materials.
