How to treat your guides

What a great day having a professional fishing guide take your fish off, tie your lures, net the big fish, and open the cooler to offer you something cold to drink.  These men are working hard to make sure the trip you are on is a experience you will remember.  If you smoke be courteous  when smoking, try to keep the smoke away from your guide , a lot of our guides don’t smoke, but some do. I get asked every week what a tip should be for a guide, tough question to answer. I fish a lot with guides, and I feel you should tip what feels right.   On one trip the two fisherman were tipping twenty dollars  a day, you know something the guides kept working hard.  On the average for me is one hundred dollars a day, with bonus money for big fish.  These men are working to make sure that you have a trip of a lifetime.
