Take a Classic Phil Monahan Fly-Fishing Trivia Challenge 03.19.15

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. Here’s a classic quiz, which asks you to choose the best imitation of a given trout food.

Warning: For each question, there is a best answer; just because you might catch a fish on another fly doesn’t mean it’s the right answer.

The scores on the last quiz dropped a bit from the previous, with just three perfect scores. Kudos to Louis Coleman (no, not that Louis Coleman) and Charlie, with an extra-special medal of honor for winston, who has now scored 100% for three weeks in a row! (I’m pretty sure that’s never been done before; can he go for four?) There were two 95% scores, a single 90%, and the most common score was a lowly 40%.

The randomly chosen winner of this week’s quiz will receive a year’s subscription to Catch Magazine. Our last winner (as determined by random.org) was Shawn, who didn’t exactly ace the test.

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!

Good luck!

  1. 70% don’t think that’s bad considering I’ve only been fly fishing and tying for about 3yrs. 🙂

  2. 90% – but I thee protest! A Klinkhammer? A Klinkhammer? That’s a Klunkhammer of an answer. I klinkhammer is when you don’t know what hatching and there are no bugs!


  3. 90% 5 times. Something might be wrong, no matter what I put for question 10 it always reverts to the first option. So when I put prince nymph in it looks as if I put the first answer. Just wanted to point that out there. Otherwise I would of gotten 100.

  4. Wow, so many 100%s, congrats to those people. I got 80%. It was a very good quiz and I learned some new things.

  5. 50%…… Don’t know rivers or flies apparently, but I’ll let myself off being a non-American saltwater guy.
