Take an All-New Phil Monahan Fly-Fishing Trivia Challenge 06.12.14

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. We’ve got another new one: ten questions about history, demographics, fly patterns, and more.

The scores on last week’s Trivia Challenge were about the same as those of the previous week, but with a slightly lower average. The most common score was 50%, and there were just three perfect scores. Congrats to Chris, Thomas, and Dale Spaller! Nine people missed a perfect score by just one question.

The randomly chosen winner of this week’s quiz will receive a copy of All Fishermen Are Liars by John Gierach. The winner of our last quiz (as determined by random.org) was Eli, who is a half-full kind of person, I hope.

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.

Good luck!

  1. 60%
    But I have a question about Q3: I know you can read fish ear bones like tree rings, but does that apply to scales as well?

  2. At least I know the US fly fishing demographics… 50%. Thanks again for the educational quiz, Phil!

  3. One more comment – here in Tennessee a willowfly is a large light colored mayfly that hatches in some lakes.

  4. 60% – hard to believe that there are only 3.8 million fly anglers out there – pretty crowded sometimes.

  5. 90% this week with a couple of lucky guesses. Need to study more ancient fly-fishing history to get to 100%!

  6. 70%…mmm. Two of my wrong answers were…A “female ferrule” and a “Strip set”. Where the heck was my mind at?

  7. 100% without cheating! Guessed at 4 or 5. I hope I did not use up the luck that I was in need of on my upcoming trip!
