Welcome to another edition of our fly-fishing trivia challenge, where 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 more brand new questions on a variety of subjectsfrom undammed rivers to outdoor-gear chain stores. This is another quiz for the generalists in the audience, as you’ll need to know a little bit about a lot of subjects to do well.
The scores on the last week’s Classic Trivia Challenge represented the second week in a row with no perfect scores. Congratulations to Kyle and Len, the only two who missed just a single question. (There were 11 folks who got an 80%.)
The randomly chosen winner of this week’s quiz will receive a copy of Great Fishing Lodges of North America by Paul Fersen, a gorgeous coffee-table book. The winner of our last quiz (as determined by random.org) was Tom, who is a half-full kind of guy, if you know what I mean.
So, take this week’s quiz, and no matter how well or poorly you do, post your score in the comments below to be eligible to win a cool book.
Take Our Quiz!
