Outdoors: "Fishing with a president" features Steve Brown, Denver native and fly-fishing guide based out of Telluride and Honduras

Quoting from Karl Licis, Special to The Post:

"Steve Brown, a Denver native who splits his time between Telluride and Honduras, is prominently mentioned in an article by former president Jimmy Carter appearing in the current issue of 'Fly Fisherman' magazine.

The piece describes fishing on Guanaja Island, about 50 miles off the coast of mainland Honduras, where Brown is a fly-fishing guide. Brown, a graduate of Cherry Creek High School and Colorado College who has a master's degree from Colorado State, also guides for Telluride Outside and Gunnison River Expeditions."

  1. Steve Brown just shared a San Francisco travel column by Jill Robinson from Sunday December 19 that also refers to President Carter's fly fishing trip to the Honduran island of Guanaja. Link:
