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 ten questions on a variety of subjects from a quiz first posted last year. This is a chance to see how much you remember or how much you have learned.
The scores on the last week’s Trivia Challenge about fly casting were downright unprecedented, with 65 100%sa new record! You folks definitely know a lot about when to use particular casts, even though many of you pointed out that actually making those casts was a different story.
The randomly chosen winner of this week’s quiz will receive a copy of Great Fishing Lodges of North America by Paul Fersen, a gorgeous coffee-table book. The winner of our last quiz (as determined by random.org) was Matt, who missed joining the 100 Club by a single question.
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 book.
Take Our Quiz!
