So, what is the usual tip rate for a guide?
Does it vary depending on the area, or is it pretty standard throughout N.A.?
On 4/30-5/1 a cousin of mine and i are going on a two day guided float down the John Day river in Oregon. We are going to be chasing the well publicized smallies that live there.
I am usually a generous tipper and i think for something like this i am willing to reward a good guide for sharing his knowledge. Our idea is to float this river and learn it from a guide and then next year make the tips in our own boats.
Also, anyone have suggestions on what smallmouth like for flies?
