Take a New Phil Monahan Fly-Fishing Trivia Challenge 08.22.19

Welcome to the latest 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 an all-new set of ten questions about book authors, famous rivers, fish distribution, fly names, and more.

The last quiz was obviously right in your wheelhouse, as there were eight 100 scores! Standing ovation for Toms, Will, Kevin Hall, S. Henry West, Jim Mitchell, George Looms, Dave Ballman, and Randy H.! That said, early on, there was an error in the quiz on question #10. So if you legitimately knew that a Picket Pin was a wet fly, give yourself another 10%. The most common score was a tie between 80% and 90%. Wow!

The winner of this week’s random drawing will receive The Orvis Guide to Leaders, Knots, and Tippets by none other than the great Tom Rosenbauer. This handy take-along book addresses the technical issues surrounding leaders and connections in relation to state-of-the-art line materials and types, and details the best overall knots for fly-line connections.

The winner of our last quiz–who also gets  The Orvis Guide to Leaders, Knots, and Tippets–is Shawn Dahkne, whose score was just a tad below average. But it’s okay because, he says, “I love to learn tho!”

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

  1. You scored 60%! Although I agree with Dave R. A parachute cast isn’t the cast you want to use to avoid obstacles behind you.

    1. Yellow Breeches is in PA, the other 3 are in NY. There might be another difference, but that’s one at least.
