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.
Take Our Quiz!
