Take a Classic Phil Monahan Fly-Fishing Trivia Challenge 07.09.20

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 that run the gamut from famous female fly-fishing guides to saltwater world records.

The performance on the last quiz was not great. There were no perfect scores, and just three 90-percenters. Golf claps for Roger, Peter D, and Steve. The most common score was a (GULP!) 40%. Let’s hope this week goes better.

The winner of this week’s random drawing will receive a two-pack of Orvis Mirage Trout Leaders in the size of their choice. Pure fluorocarbon Mirage has the highest abrasion resistance of any leader or tippet, and is virtually invisible to fish. Mirage fluoro leaders should be your go-to for spring creeks, still water, large streamers, or fishing nymphs in clear water.

The winner of our last quiz (as determined by random.org)–who will also receive a pack of Mirage leaders–is MarkT, who who looked at the bright side of his 50%: “but a 10% improvement!”

So post your score below (or below the post on our Facebook page!) for a chance to win a great video.

Good luck!

  1. Regarding the smallmouth famous fishery question. I selected the Owyhee R. from my state of Oregon. I did so because no body travels to fish the smallmouth bass in that river. They do travel to fish for trout. Almost anyone outside the state of Oregon and I would guess many within the state of Oregon do not realize there are smallmouth bass in the Owyhee, or more importantly, care.

    And since I did not know much about any of the other listed fisheries, I selected the Owyhee. I would be interested to hear how many of your test takers either knew there were smallmouth bass or thought it was famous for the bass.
    Glad to have the trivia test return. It is always great to limber up the cortex. 80% this week.

  2. 70% – At least I got the 7 ounces correct on the trevally question. Doesn’t that count for partial credit?

  3. 60% Got the ones I “knew” correct and the ones I guessed at wrong. Need to improve my guessing!
