Take an All-New Phil Monahan Fly-Fishing Trivia Challenge 05.21.15

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 Patterson—was 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.

Good luck!

  1. 40% this is a new low for me. I don’t like it way down here
    Posted from the Orvis Fly Fishing App

  2. 60%– I shouldn’t have second guessed myself and it would have been 90%! Oh well . . . there’s always next time.

  3. 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

  4. 20% I hate to complain, testing my knowledge of the Orvis family tree. That’s hitting below the wader belt.

  5. Sneaky Question on the first one. There is a “Clarks Fork river” in Wyoming. Clarks Fork of the Yellowstone is up in the Beartooths near Cody, Wy.

    Clark Fork and Clarks Fork. Sneaky Devils.
