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 quiz, with questions about famous authors, angling rivers, fly tiers, and more.
The last quiz produced much better results than the previous one, with four perfect scores. A round of kudos for Al Cravinho, Adam Wilcox, Jim J (2nd quiz in a row!), and Clint (who achieved perfection on his birthday!). Another six folks missed just a single question, and the most common score dropped one spot to 70%.
The winner of this week’s random drawing will receive an Orvis Bead Head and Tungsten Nymphs selection–a versatile and go-to selection of our most popular bead head and tungsten flies. It’s just what an angler needs for getting deep, from now through the high water of springtime.
The winner of our last quiz–who gets The Orvis Guide to Leaders, Knots, and Tippets–is BRoss, who said of his 80%, “Best in a long while,” and now he gets rewarded for it.
So post your score below (or below the post on our Facebook page!) for a chance to win 10 effective trout flies.

Quiz is not working for me.
Shows a gray box that says “created with the free plan at Crowdsignal.com”
The “Start Quiz” button is just barely showing on the far right side of the screen, but I can click it to run the quiz. Maybe the “Start Quiz” button should be centered in the window.
Are you on a phone? Turn it sideways, and you should see the “start quiz” button.
