Default How much to tip an Orvis class guide

I'm really looking forward to taking an Orvis fly-fishing course at Broken Bow, OK on August 8th. Orvis has hired a guide for the day. This will be my very first fly-fishing experience.

How much $$ should I take along as a potential tip for the 1-day guided adventure?

Thanks for your responses.

I would expect the guide to be Rob Woodruff, the best and most knowledgeable I know of in that part of the world. His daily rate is likely $350-$500, so a tip somewhere between $35 and $100 covers the 10-20% range. I'm betting you'll feel like handing him a Benjamin at the end of the day.
