Welcome to another edition of our trivia challenge, where 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 hodgepodge-style quiz, which covers a variety of topics.
The scores on last week’s Trivia Challenge were pretty impressive, given how difficult it was. You had to know a lot of geography to get a perfect score. In all, there were four 100%s (congrats CJ, Luke Alder, Casey, and Bob!) and one 90% (very close, BradW!). Lots of folks need to look at a map once in awhile.
The randomly chosen winner of this week’s quiz will receive a super-cool, now-available Helios 2 Buff. (See below.) The winner of our last quiz (as determined by random.org) was Kurt J, who considers himself lucky to have achieved a passing score.
So, take this week’s quiz, and no matter how well or poorly you do, post your score in the comments below to be eligible to win a cool Buff.
Take Our Quiz!
