After spending years in this industry, visiting tons of lodges, fishing with many many guides, and hanging and sleeping in guides quarters on photo shoots, you hear a lot of stories about clients, or "sports" as the parlance goes on the guide side. Many times these yarns come back to that age-old question about tips. How much, how little, how often do you tip your guide? I've heard stories of guides getting $1,000 tips, clients handing them a rod and reel at the end of a day, getting invited on their next exotic trip, etc. It goes on and on. While some clients can be a pain in the arse, most as far as I can tell are very generous people.
