Welcome to another edition of our 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 10 new questions on subjects as diverse as Atlantic salmon flies, Western rivers, and obscure trout species.
The performance on the last quiz was mediocre at best, with just one perfect score: All hail Dave Driscoll! Eight people missed perfection by just a single question, and the most common score remained steady, at 60%.
The randomly chosen winner of this week’s quiz will receive a copy of Fly-Casting Finesse, by John L. Field, which features a forward by my friend, Macauley Lord. This is a comprehensive book on casting technique, which will surely make you a better caster.
Our last winner (as determined by random.org)who will receive the coveted limited-edition Grab a Cub T-Shirt from Hank Pattersonwas Jon, whose score was low enough to be precipitated by the word “Ouch!” If you did not win the t-shirt, you can still buy one here.
So post your score below for a chance at winning a great casting book.

It said I scored “30 %!” Somehow, the exclamation point *didn’t* make me feel accomplished in spite of! Score like that causes me to wish I’d waited a couple of hours, so that my results were buried farther down in the Comments
