Got lucky today! 80%, but most were guesses.
I have to disagree with your answer to #7. According to this document…
“The chinook salmon was first introduced
(unsuccessfully) to all of the Great Lakes except Lake Superior in 1873 (Mills et al.
1993). It wasn’t until plantings in the mid 1960’s that naturally reproducing populations
Ooh, you’re right! Lemme go add the word “Successfully.” And give yourself credit!

You scored 90%!
80% ah the highs and lows of guessing!
You scored 50%!
30%- I suspect that a higher percentage of participants will have a score in this range. Most of us are just too embarrassed to report low scores. Self reporting is going to taint the results.

Excellent, Phil! First 90% in a very long time. Would have been 100% if I went with my first instinct in the number of fish Del caught.
Lake Michigan snuck up on me!
40% Best I have done in a while.
50%, much better than that 30% beating from last week. LOL!
80% not bad!
The upper leg of a fly line can drop below the lower leg of the fly line while the loop is unrolling and not form a tailing loop. It is simply an underpowered cast. Some have referred to this as a crossing loop. The cast is made slowly with very little final tip rotation. It does not always tail. Tailing loops will occur with an abrupt application of power during any part of the stroke.
50%. I only half suck
70% best score in a long time
Down to 60% this week from 90% last week. I missed all 3 I guessed at and one that I thought I knew. Phil, you misspelled my last name in the recap of last week’s quiz, it’s Cravinho, not Gravinho.
Sorry, Albert! I guess I misread my own handwriting. Fixed!
