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 from the archive to get the synapses firing, on subjects as varied as fly names, book titles, and strange fish species.
The last quiz was another tough nut to crack, and there was just one perfect score. Give it up for MarkT! However, eight responders scored 90%, including–believe it or not–Alan Burrows, who is on a streak of four 90s in a row. The most common score held steady at 60%.
The winner of this week’s random drawing will receive The Orvis Guide to Leaders, Knots, and Tippets by none other than the great Tom Rosenbauer. This handy take-along book addresses the technical issues surrounding leaders and connections in relation to state-of-the-art line materials and types, and details the best overall knots for fly-line connections.
The winner of our last quiz–who gets The Orvis Fly-Tying Guide–is Shawn, whose score was just above average.
So post your score below (or below the post on our Facebook page!) for a chance to win a great video.
