Take a NEW Phil Monahan Fly-Fishing Trivia Challenge 12.19.19

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. A word about these quizzes: they are made up of trivia, which is by definition obscure stuff that you don’t need to know. Don’t feel bad if you get a bad score. My hope is that you learn something cool that you didn’t know before. I sure as heck don’t know all these answers before I start putting the weekly challenge together.

The last quiz was another pretty difficult one, producing just a single perfect score, turned in by–guess who!–Alan Burrows, who is on a remarkable run of three 100s in a row. There was just a single 90% (well done, Dave F.) and eight 80s, and the most popular score held steady at 50.

he 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. Go to www.livethestreamfilm.com to watch, download and stream the film on digital platforms, also available on DVD and Blu-ray.

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 Dan Koshman, whose score was higher than most.

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

Good luck!

  1. Holy Toledo, 100% !! And that’s an honest Google -free score. I better run down and buy a scratch off before the mojo wears off.

  2. 60%. Missed EVERY ONE I had to guess at…

    And I know Alan Burrows. I wouldn’t trust that guy as far as I could throw him!!! 😉

  3. 70% – The question on trout species was puzzling. I’ll have to do some research. Thanks for arousing my curiousity.

  4. Merry Christmas. Thanks for all you efforts at the Orvis news website. I try not to miss a day. Much enjoyed.

  5. 70% but I must question the Lahontan rainbow trout. Granted there is no “rainbow of this species”
    but to the reader who sees Lahontan and trout together it is natural to assume you are talking about the rather rare and special trout of the desert regions.
    I much prefer to answer questions that deal with knowledge and skills rather than word trickery
