Bryan Medina is a fly fishing guide at Fly Fish Guanaja in Honduras for the past two years. He is on top of his game with guiding. Fish for Change has taught him so much about guiding in the short period time. Bryan is able to work with two brothers, Edwin and Tito, every single day on the water, doing what they love. Fish for Change has given him the opportunity to meet so many people and make so make many connections.
Bryan hopes that when someone visits Guanaja, that they leave feeling loved. He hopes that everyone feels like they gained a new family when visiting Guanaja. Fish for Change students have the chance to become part of the community of Guanaja when they take part in the conservation work by planting mangroves to help preserve the fishery. This work makes it possible for generations of Fly Fish Guanaja guides to be able to share the love of their culture and the water with Fish for Change students. That’s why Bryan loves his job so much, He loves being able to build relationships with people over fishing and being able to share his culture with others.
