Take a Classic Phil Monahan Fly-Fishing Trivia Challenge 09.26.19

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 a classic quiz, with questions about famous fly tiers, movie roles, gear history, and more.

The last quiz was another stumper, as there were zero perfect scores. There were, however, three 90-percenters, so offer your congrats to BillW, Peter D, and Chris S. (It was a good day for initials.) There were an impressive fourteen 80% scores, and the most common score jumped one spot to 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 also gets  The Orvis Guide to Leaders, Knots, and Tippets–is tk 118, who scored so well that he or she commented “ouch!”

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

  1. 80%. But, really, 90%. Because, according to Orvis, “The Griffith’s Gnat imitates a lot of different insects. Created by George Griffith, one of the founders of Trout Unlimited, it’s a buggy dry fly and can be fished a …”

    So it would seem that there are two correct answers to this question…

  2. 80. Phil does a good job of asking questions that require diverse knowlege of the whole US. A regional guy has no advantages!

  3. 50% – Below my average but I blame it on the fact that I took the test while in Ireland. Heavy rains overnight made the Kings River in County Kilkenny unfishable for brown trout.
