Chaoborus (Glassworm)

#1
I was just wondering if anyone was familiar with the glassworm and if so what do they look like and what colors do they come in?

I have seen (and tied) Chaoborus flies which use clear glass beads as the body with a single wind of white hackle front and back. I haven't fished them.

It's a larvae...what's a reasoning for the hackle ala a Renegade style? I presume with beads and hackle its quite large as well. I'm thinking a 20 or smaller scud hook would do the trick.

I`ve tied some on size 18 hooks using a pale yellow thread underbody , over wrapped with pearl mylar tinsel . Sometimes I`ll add a dot from a sharpie . Success has been limited .:(
