Welcome to the latest 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 ten classic questions about native trout, famous fly tiers, angling quotations, and fish anatomy. How many can you get (or guess) right?
The last quiz was another tough one, with the top scorer, Skip Persson, missing just a single question–which elicited a “close, but no cigar!” Five of you missed two questions, and things went downhill quickly from there. For the fourth week in a row, the most common score was a 50%.
The winner of this week’s random drawing will receive a Retro Mountain Bent Rod Hat, which features the iconic Orvis Bent Rod logo against a retro graphic mountainscape. This is a new hat in our ever-changing collection of cool lids.
The winner of our last quiz (as determined by the Google random number generator)–who will receive the Complete Hy-Flote Floatant System–is Markreno, whose score was the most common one.
So post your score below (or below the post on our Facebook page!) for a chance to win a great video.

A fine 60%
One of my better efforts 80%
80%. Had to do some guessing!
I mean 30% is better than not trying at all.
Down 2 places to 60%.
Down to 60% this week.
delete, post wasn’t showing up on my phone

70% – best in a while!
Back down to 40%
Florida!!!!! Dammit well still happy with 90% best score yet.
90%. Better than expected.
60% this time.
90% finally been hitting around 50% for to long
30% Horrible guesser
40% need to reread my fly fishing books
80%…thought I had that one nailed.
60% – Doubled last week’s score. Still nothing to brag about.
60% – Doubled last week’s score.
60% Would have been 80% if I’d stuck with my first answers
Thought I would do better.
Only 50%, but I could use a hat
Got a 90%. Tricky question #2 since I think Hap’s Bug was earlier, but wasn’t called a diver.
50% Missed some easy ones…. oh well. Its Friday.
60% this week. I am sure if I take it over again, I could score lower.
60%. All my guesses were wrong
OMG I went 6 for 6 to start and then went 0 for 4 to finish! 😀 One of my better results to date. 60%
The Clouser Minnow is also a diving fly. They must have been close in years. Good quiz!
70 for twice in a row
60% – best ever I think
100%. Just by explanation, I “knew” only 5 of the answers, but I’m a good researcher and within a few minutes found the rest of them. If I had to answer based on only what’s in my head, I’d probably score 40-60% at best. If this is not in the spirit of the whole thing, tell me and I’ll knock off the researching and go with what I know…hoping for lucky guesses on the rest. Skip
100%- including two lucky guesses!
ok 80% not bad
Not bad for me
Call me 40% Johnny
Only way is up from 40%
back to 30% and I thought i did much better
30% because I second guessed 4 that were initially correct. I’ll never learn. Florida threw me because I second guessed most people salt water fish and recall not requiring a license?
70%. Best in awhile…
60% zero lucky guesses
70%, some good guessing!
50% as always
