Take a NEW Phil Monahan Fly-Fishing Trivia Challenge 12.12.19

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 ten all-new questions about such topics as famous rapids, angling quotations, fly identification, and more.

The last quiz was a difficult one, producing just a single perfect acore, achieved by Alan Burrows, who was perfect for the second week in a row! There was a smattering of 90s and 80s, but most scores were considerably lower, and the most popular score plummeted to 50 (down from 80).

The winner of this week’s random drawing will receive a a code to download “Live The Stream: The Story of Joe Humphreys,” the inspiring life story of Pennsylvania’s fly fishing legend, Joe Humphreys. It’s a visually stunning film, and anyone with a pulse can appreciate Joe’s contagious spirit and, at 86-years-young, trout streams are his fountains of youth.

The winner of our last quiz (as determined by the Google random number generator), who will also receive download “Live The Stream: The Story of Joe Humphreys,” is Andy S.,

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

Good luck!

  1. I got 50% but after doing some investigation into some of the answers I would have to disagree with a few of them.

    According to the internet brown Trout were introduced to Kodiak Island in the late 1800’s which does not make it native, and the Faulklands have had strong populations of sea run browns as far back as history.
    According to Montana’s own webpage Rainbow are not native.

    1. 1. There currently are not brown trout on Kodiak Island, which is why that’s the correct answer. Did you misread the question? There is nothing in the question about native trout. The Falklands do have a population, which is why that’s NOT the correct answer.
      2. Dunno which Montana page you were looking at. From MT.gov: “Scientists believe that only the rainbow trout of the upper Kootenai River drainage are native to this state. This small group of natives are a Fish of Special Concern.” (http://fieldguide.mt.gov/speciesDetail.aspx?elcode=AFCHA02090)

  2. 60% two weeks in a row.
    You must have been using trivial pursuit cards that were discarded
    by angry anglers for some of these questions. My vocabulary is expanding
    weekly, or is it weakly?

  3. 30% – A new low but I left room to extend my decline.

    Yes, Columbia River redband trout, a sub-species of rainbow trout, are native to the Kootenai River in northwest Montana.

    That’s the only question I didn’t guess the answer!
