Wax worms are not found in any rivers,lakes or streams until anglers put them on a hook and cast them in.Bcz they are an insect larvae w/ guts they will have a smell/flavor the fish might find attractive,but,as a fly they have no stronger degree of attraction than any other random fly you could choose....I'd be more inclined to throw something the fish might recognize,like a caddis or such.

If you're fishing for fresh stockers it probably doesn't matter what you throw as long as it looks like a pellet.

I think if you look at the Mop Fly thread, you will find what you are looking for.  Don't let anyone discourage you from trying something different.

If you’re  generally looking to match maggots for dumb stockies, just use a strip of a latex glove and either a black bead or a bit of dubbing.
