Steven Calaway Brown (Owner)

Steve Brown is a Colorado native and has been fly fishing most of his life. For the past fifteen years he has been guiding in Southeastern Colorado running three-day float trips in the Black Canyon of the Gunnison River, and wade trips on the Dolores, San Miguel, and many others. Steve is also part owner of Emerald Waters Anglers Colorado running trips in the Roaring Fork Valley. Several journeys through Central America during off seasons led him to the Bay islands of Honduras, saltwater fly-fishing. He found expansive flats empty of any other fishers, yet full of fish: permit, bonefish, tarpon, and more. He first explored Utila, then Roatan, and finally Guanaja–the crown jewel of them all. Guanaja was always hard to get to, until it all came together. Steve’s dreams of starting a small, sustainable fly-fishing lodge came to fruition in the Spring of 2008. 15 years of guiding in Colorado gifted Steve with top-shelf clients/friends who are now experiencing the dream in Guanaja. Steve also earned a Masters in English at Colorado State University. He created and taught writing courses at Colorado College including: River-related Literature and Writing through Fly-fishing, Boating, and Back-packing Summers of 2003-2006 and Reading and Writing Rivers and Oceans of Honduras: River and ocean-related literature through salt-water fly-fishing, sailing, snorkeling, and sea-kayaking. Summer of 2007. Steve has a deep rooted passion for fly fishing and conservation and developed Guanaja’s Sustainable Development Project with students and volunteers within the communities of Guanaja, a program which has also been running for the past 7 years.
