Welcome to a classic 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 questions about the best fly patterns to imitate insects, crustaceans, baitfish, and more! Remember: we are looking for the BEST answer for each.
The performance on the last quiz was a bit of a drop-off from the previous one. Just one person achieved a perfect scores, so big ups to James L. Faber, who credited “one good guess.” A mere 2 others scored 90%, and the most common score fell all the way back down to 40%.
The winner of this week’s random drawing will receive an Orvis PRO Trout Smooth Fly Line. This new lines is designed with advanced compound tapers to be the best all-around trout line available and is the most versatile trout line available for multiple techniques and environments.
The winner of our last quiz, who will receive a signed copy of The Orvis Fly Fishing Guide by Tom Rosenbauer , is Paul, who moaned, “60% once again”–although this time that was well above average.
So post your score below (or below the post on our Facebook page!) for a chance to win a great book.

Bitch Creek is also a great novel by William “Tap” Tapply, The acclaimed author of the Brady Coyne fly fishing mystery novels.
