About Us


Damsel Fly Fishing has been a dream of founder Kara Tripp since she started to regularly
fly fish in college. Spending all that time on the water in ill-fitting and unstylish outerwear took
a toll on her. After all, just because you're fishing doesn’t mean you don’t want to look good while
doing it. When she started to look for a specific women’s brand of fishing apparel she found...nothing.
At least nothing you could call fashionable and functional for fishing. Hence, the dream for apparel
and accessories designed by women anglers for women anglers that is classy and comfortable.
Naturally, Kara shared her dream with her younger sister Lynae, a fellow angler, who immediately jumped
on board. Today, the sisters are partners in Damsel Fly Fishing.


    Damsel Fly Fishing was started by two sisters who are trying to make their dream come
alive. Started by women who have a story to tell through the products they make. Women who fly fish
and get their tan lines from being outside. Who understand that even though you are not afraid to get your
hands dirty,you want to look classy and comfortable while doing it. We are real women who are making high
quality, functional but fashionable accessories to take you from drift to drinks. We will get to know you,
our customer, through fly fishing lessons and adventures. Our involvement with Casting for Recovery and
Rivers of Recovery will show you what moves our heart. For those in faraway places we will get to know you
on our Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest community.
Damsel Fly Fishing is more than just fishing products,
it’s a family.


  Our Mom died September 2014 after a long fight with breast cancer. In her battle for life she showed us
what strength looks like, what grace acts like and what love can overcome. It was her example of courage and
determination that gave us the well needed push to finally start Damsel Fly Fishing. While she may no longer be with us, her influence can be seen in the products and decisions we make.
