Default Tips for Guides

Hey all,

I'm going on a guided fishing trip Monday on the Soque River. It's going to be my first "real" foray into flyfishing.

I'm going with my uncle, and I was wondering what a "good" tip is for a guide for a 1/2 day trip (noon to 5pm), for 2 people?

I know there's probably no exact answer - but I was just curious what the common practice is.

Thanks!

20% of the bill is the standard gratuity across all tip-wage jobs.
