Take a NEW Phil Monahan Fly-Fishing Trivia Challenge 01.23.20

Welcome to another 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 10 new questions about flies, authors, fish species, rivers, and more. I had a strange case of the “NOTs” while making this one, so make sure you read each question carefully.

The last quiz produced some great scores, including five 100s. Hearty Huzzah!s for Peter D., shoo-fly, Steve M, Eric Grams, and Roger. There were another four 90% scores, and the most common score dropped to 60%.

The winner of this week’s random drawing will receive a copy of Steve Woit’s impressive Fly Fishing Treasures: The World of Fly Fishers and Collecting. The book offers a colorful review of the world of fly fishers and collecting, including 30 interviews with leading collectors, experts, museum and club curators, tackle manufacturers, auctioneers and traders and dealers of antique, vintage and collectible fly fishing tackle.

The winner of our last quiz (as determined by the Google random number generator)–who will receive download “Live The Stream: The Story of Joe Humphreys”–is Roger, whose perfect score is further rewarded with the prize!

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

Good luck!
