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 was just a bit harder that the previous one, as some 9 of you achieved a 100%. Congrats to: Fausto, Don Rubadeau, Ron, Stephen, Richard, Cindi Vetter, BillW, Johnh, and John Boatwright.
This week’s classic quiz features 10 questions about everything from fly-rod terminology to trout biology.
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 Gabriel, who scored in the middle of the pack, but still gets the prize.
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.
Take Our Quiz!
