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. This one’s a classic, featuring 10 questions that range from famous fly tiers to carp anatomy to trout species.
The last quiz was a doozy, apparently, for there was just one perfect score. And guess who it was: Tom Rosenbauer hisself!
The randomly chosen winner of this week’s quiz will receive a signed copy of Tom’s book The Orvis Guide to Small Stream Fly Fishing. The last book winner (as determined by random.org) was Glenn S., who scored a very respectable 80%.
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.
