Take an All-New Phil Monahan Fly-Fishing Trivia Challenge 03.10.16

Welcome to another edition of our (kind of) 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, in honor of our Giant Fly Sale, we’ve got 20 more brand-new questions about trout-fly identification. (See some caveats below.)

On the last quiz, there were eight perfect scores, an 800% improvement over the previous quiz. Our perfect scores belonged to Charlie, Paul P, Bob Teeden, Denny, Chad Bunger, Dickenson, Stephen Fitch, and An. Nine readers missed a perfect score by just a single question, including Brendan, who claims that he achieved his 95% despite the fact that he “literally guessed on every one.” The most common score was up a tick to 65%.

The randomly chosen winner of this week’s quiz will receive his or her choice of an Orvis Fly Selection, featuring patterns chosen by Orvis-endorsed professional guides. The winner of our last quiz (as determined by random.org) was Eric J, who scored a very respectable 90%.

Quiz caveats: The categories of dry, nymph, wet, and streamer are meant to encompass all other similar categories. Please don’t argue, for example, “The Black Nose Dace isn’t a streamer! It’s a bucktail!” For the purposes of this quiz, if you cast a fly out and then work it like a baitfish or a leech, it’s a streamer. If a fly floats, it’s a dry. . .even if you think it’s really an emerger. Where there are two versions of a named fly, one of them is much more popular and well-known. Choose that one. Okay, have at it!

So post your score below for a chance at some great stickers.

Good luck!

  1. 75 percent. I’d kind of quit fishing Trudes. I remember that I liked them for a while, though, so it’s probably time to try them again. Thanks!

  2. Wow. 90%. But I question that a Breadcrust is a nymph. It’s more like a soft hackle wet fly. But hey- 90% still ain’t bad!
