Shafer’s Flies – Shafer’s Shafermid – Part 3

The Shafer’s Flies series are all my flies that I have created over the years that I use day in and day out on the water. It has taken many guide trips and days out on the water fly fishing to perfect these bugs! Many of these flies have been in books and magazines over the years. I hope you enjoy this series and please don’t tell too many people about these flies I still use them every day out on the water.

The Shafermid is a Chironomid Pattern I developed for the Rocky Mountain Regions Still Waters. This fly has become my go too pattern for large reservoirs to small lakes and every lake in between. I always have this pattern on when I’m searching a new lake! I use these in sizes #20-#16, under indicators or tight line systems and on sinking line systems. Try this one out on your local still water you won’t be disappointed!

You can purchase my hand tied flies from this site as well and your local fly shop can get them in stock from
