Google the term "estaz worm". That may be what you're looking for.

Many years back I found myself needing a fly that would imitate the big rubber worms that Bass Anglers favor and I recalled from decades earlier using Uncle Josh's Pork Rind strips for bass in those largely pre-rubber worm days. about then I had an idea which turned out to be a killer for a fly and took a piece of tan chamois I had lying around and cut a bunch of strips, eels, split tails, etc and colored them with a magic marker. I then added them to a couple larger Wooley Worms (Buggers hadn't become the vogue yet) and voila, an instant and super effective Bass Fly. Here's a link and scroll down a page or so and you'll see a variety of the pork strips that I imitated. To this day I've got a few in my vest to add slinkiness and length to a killer fly. Add one to a popper and you have a snake, add one to a clouser and you have jig and worm combo that will take all big game fish. 2011 March | Mama Mia Fishing

Over the years I refined the fly a bit and now favor a pre-tied rabbit strip tail, using a 6-9 inch strip of rabbit strip, shaved except for an inch or so of paddle tail and then a palmered body made of shapplen feather. Black and Purple is the best color for deeper flies and for a snake color black and yellow added to a Dahlberg head is best. For the deeper flies, i use a 3/0 to 5/0 commercial weedless hook with a wire guard and do the same for some of the floaters but use a heavier mono loop as a weed guard instead.

Good Luck and hold on as these are big bad bass flies!

While you're googling, look up braided worm flies. There are some cool multi colors you can "braid" up.

Here is your basic San Juan worm, you can easily change the colors or even do a dual color or I have seen where the thread is a contrasting color from the chenille.

Olive V-Worm - Fly. Might be along the line you're looking for. Good material. Kinda pricey. But...if you don't tie...
