About Our Fly Fishing Guide Service

Our owner, Cyndie Saffell, started Damsels On The Fly in 2015 with the mission to introduce women to the wilderness, in small doses, whether it is a day or an afternoon on the river. Today, we continue this mission by offering guided trips to high Colorado mountain lakes and high elevation streams. With experience in Rocky Mountain wilderness and back country, we bring familiarity in the stream systems and high mountain lakes in Grand County and other areas of the northwest mountains of Colorado.
