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 quiz, featuring 10 questions about famous authors, fish species, fly tiers, and lots more!
The last quiz was must have been pert-darn easy, as there were eleven perfect scores! Give it up for BillW, Steve B., Peter D, Brian Epstein, Rod Jones, Paul, fausto, Randy, Peter, Paul D DeJohn, and Andy Feige! Another twelve people scored 90%–most didn’t know that there are two tarpon species–and the most common score leaped back up to 60%!
The winner of this week’s random drawing will receive a copy of Arlen Thomason’s book BugWater: A Fly Fisher’s Look Through the Seasons at Bugs in Their Aquatic Habitat and the Fish That Eat Them, from Stackpole Books. Organized around the seasons, BugWater follows the bugs and the trout through their life cycles from spring through winter. Thomason’s stunningly striking photos and fascinating narratives show off the bugs up close, in amazing detail. With the author’s insights as both a scientist and fly fisher and his expertise as a photographer, this book delivers solid content all fly fishers can learn from.
The winner of our last quiz (as determined by random.org), and recipient of Chico Fernandez’s great book Fly Fishing for Bonefish, is Paul Mohler, whose score wasn’t something to write home about. But he still gets an awesome book.
So post your score below (or below the post on our Facebook page!) for a chance to win a great book.
