Take a Classic Phil Monahan Fly-Fishing Trivia Challenge, 09.19.13


Written by: Phil Monahan

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.

The last quiz on fly-fishing books was just a bit harder than the previous one, since there were only 4 perfect scores. (Congrats Mark P., George Liset, Stephen, and Ryan Palmer!) Seven others scored 90% or 95%.

This week’s classic quiz features 10 questions about everything from fly-reel terminology to hybrid-fish identification.

The randomly chosen winner of this week’s quiz will receive a signed copy of Tom’s book The Orvis Guide to Prospecting for Trout. This is the book you need for those times when there is no specific hatch on. Last week’s book winner (as determined by random.org) was Fausto, who scored a 90% but was kicking himself for the two misses.

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 Tom’s book with his inspirational words on the title page.

Good luck!



Whaddya call this thing?

    80%. The steelhead river was a guess. BUT I was at the Museum of fly fishing in Vermont and still answered for the one in the Catskills…Duhhhh.

    60% not good but better than other weeks. In my defense I spend more time fishing for the pleasure of relaxation than studying
