Our Story


Damsel started on the river almost 20 years ago when Kara started dreaming up designs for women's fly fishing accessories while fishing. It wasn't until 2015 when our mother died from a long fight with breast cancer 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 every product and decision we make. 

We are happy you decided to join us on our journey. Stay tuned here for new products, special collaborations, stories, sales, and events.

Damsel is dedicated to to designing fishing accessories for women anglers with an emphasis on simple designs, timeless patterns, and flexible sizing. So you can confidently adventure in nature with beautiful products that fit you so well, you forget you have them on.
