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.
    On the whole, I'd rather be in Wyoming . . .

    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.
