Take a Classic Phil Monahan Fly-Fishing Trivia Challenge 01.09.20

Welcome to another edition of our weekly trivia challenge, in which we test your knowledge of all things fly fishing and where you might learn a thing or two about this sport we love. This week, we’ve got a classic selection of 10 questions about famous angling rivers, fly designers, fish species, and Tom Rosenbauer’s resume.

The last quiz was a little easier on y’all than the previous one, with four perfect scores. Congrats to Steve Root, Matthew, Eric D., and Jim J. That means that the stunning run of three 100s in a row by Alan Burrows finally came to an end, as he crashed back to Earth. He has set the bar pretty high, though. There were an impressive nine 90% scores, and the most common score was an equally laudable 80–quite a jump from 50%.

The winner of this week’s random drawing will receive a a code to download “Live The Stream: The Story of Joe Humphreys,” the inspiring life story of Pennsylvania’s fly fishing legend, Joe Humphreys. It’s a visually stunning film, and anyone with a pulse can appreciate Joe’s contagious spirit and, at 86-years-young, trout streams are his fountains of youth. Go to www.livethestreamfilm.com to watch, download and stream the film on digital platforms, also available on DVD and Blu-ray.

The winner of our last quiz (as determined by the Google random number generator), who will also receive download “Live The Stream: The Story of Joe Humphreys,” is Kurt S, whose score was probably not a source of pride.

So post your score below (or below the post on our Facebook page!) for a chance to win a great video.

Good luck!

A word about these quizzes: they are made up of trivia, which is by definition obscure stuff that you don’t need to know. Don’t feel bad if you get a bad score. My hope is that you learn something cool that you didn’t know before. I sure as heck don’t know all these answers before I start putting the weekly challenge together.

  1. 80%.
    On the two misses it is evidence to go with your first choice, it is usually correct. I did much better since I knew the answers.

  2. 100%, and about time. Particularly liked the Hofner Bass response; I have a fishing buddy who makes his living repairing bass viols.
