Take a Classic Phil Monahan Fly-Fishing Trivia Challenge 11.03.22

Welcome to the latest edition of our occasional 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 about fly-fishing authors, famous rivers, and the origins of flies. How many can you get (or guess) right?

The last quiz was another tough one, with just s single perfect score. Let’s all give it up for Matthew Makarewicz! There was only one 90-percenter, as well, but 10 of you missed just two questions. For the fifth quiz in a row, the most common score was a 50%.

The winner of this week’s random drawing will receive a Bent Rod Badge Hat, which, which features a brim made with 100% recycled fishing nets, keeping our oceans cleaner. This is a new hat in our ever-changing collection of cool lids. All you have to do to enter is post your score below!

The winner of that late-September quiz (as determined by the random.org) is the prosaically named ron, whose score was passable, but just barely. No matter; he still gets the hat.

Don’t forget to post your score in the comments to be eligible to win a hat!

    1. In looking over Google Maps and Wikipedia, I learned that the Wind River refers to the upper reaches of the Bighorn River and changes its name to the Bighorn River at Wedding of the Waters, Wyoming, at the head of the Wind River Canyon. Apparently, this is a rare case where there is a name change not at the junction between two rivers or streams. Interesting….
