Take a NEW Phil Monahan Fly-Fishing Trivia Challenge 05.28.20

Welcome to a new edition of our weekly (sorta) 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 new questions about famous rivers,book titles, entomology, and more.

The last quiz was a bit tougher than the previous one–perhaps due to rust–as there were three perfect scores. Big ups to Roger BirdClint Brumitt, and Bob who commented, “ Absolutely crushed that! ” There were five 90% scores, and the most common score fell one spot to 60%.

The winner of this week’s random drawing will receive a two-pack of Orvis Mirage Trout Leaders in the size of their choice. Pure fluorocarbon Mirage has the highest abrasion resistance of any leader or tippet, and is virtually invisible to fish. Mirage fluoro leaders should be your go-to for spring creeks, still water, large streamers, or fishing nymphs in clear water.

The winner of our last quiz (as determined by random.org)–who will also receive a pack of Mirage leaders–is James Harper, who said of his 80%, “I guess I will take it.”

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

Good luck!

  1. 90%. Youghiogheny? REALLY! That’s like asking us Kansans to pronounce the Arkansas River! (By the way, in Kansas, it’s pronounced ArKANSAS River. Outside of the state, it’s pronounce Arkansaw River!)

  2. 60% – At least I know a gaspergou. I once caught one in the Calcasieu (pronounced just like it’s spelled) River in Louisiana (can you spell it?).

    Thanks for this week’s spelling bee.

  3. At 50% this week I am half as good as last week.
    Let me know what you are smoking when you made up this week quiz.
    Phonics was not my favorite topic in school.

  4. Uhhh, 10%, though I do question the answer for this question:

    Which of these fly tiers is best known for saltwater patterns?
    Bob Clouser is well known for salmon and sea run trout fishing flies.
