How to Tip Fishing Guides and Lodges

With the amount of traveling fly fishers do, it’s surprising that there aren’t well-publicized standards for tipping guides — something like the $1-to-$2 per bag “rule” for airport skycaps and hotel bellmen in the U.S. But just as guides and lodges in different parts of the world charge different rates for the same services, they can also have very different expectations of what makes a fair gratuity.
MidCurrent just put together this extensive review of tipping practices at lodges and locations around the world. Read it if you’re planning on doing some destination fishing this season, or even if you’re just slightly puzzled when it comes to what is an acceptable gratuity for a fishing guide.
