So I guess I really don't disagree with their guidelines for a two-angler situation.
Your correct, I was referring to two anglers!

The AK lodge I guide for usually tells clients 30-40 a day per rod.

Yes. Chris and Larry were talking about two persons fishing with one guide. My difference with their (higher) tip rate was because I was thinking one angler per guide trip. But it only makes sense to tip more when the guide has to take care of two anglers rather than just one.

I would say I must be old, because 50-80 dollars is a lot to me, and to tip that much in addition to paying for a guide........it must just be that I'm poor because I know I'm not the oldest.

I guess it would also depend on what he or she has to do. With a beginner, may have to rig gear, give lessons, untangle lines, net fish, remove hooks, but what if you have the guide simply to enable you to access a private section of the river and all he has to do is be present.

I'll just give Larry a couple hundred to take me fishing, bet I catch fish........and save money.

Over my 15yrs of guiding here in Jackson Hole the usual tip is from $40.00 to $60.00. With the extremes being $0.00 to $200.00.
