Take an All-New Phil Monahan Fly-Fishing Trivia Challenge 07.11.19

Welcome to another edition of our weekly trivia challenge, in which 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 an all-new set of ten questions about salmon rivers, fly patterns, and fish nicknames.

The last quiz showed solid improvement over the previous one, with three perfect scores. All hail Dave Ballman (2 quizzes in a row!), Steve M, and Judy W. The most common score jumped two spots to 70%.

The winner of this week’s random drawing will receive The Orvis Guide to Leaders, Knots, and Tippets by none other than the great Tom Rosenbauer. This handy take-along book addresses the technical issues surrounding leaders and connections in relation to state-of-the-art line materials and types, and details the best overall knots for fly-line connections.

The winner of our last quiz, who will receive a special code to watchBig Land, is Ron A, who just missed perfection.

So post your score below (or below the post on our Facebook page!) for a chance to win a great video.

  1. 60%. Are there really folks out there who have IGFA records for a number of fish memorized, or are they looking this stuff up before answering?

  2. The spey casting question has a very subjective answer. Competitive casters would disagree with the Orvis answer, I believe.

    Back to 70%.

  3. Who would ever use any of those knots for droppers? A blood knot will stick it straight out, but break. A triple surgeons is the way to go. Sad that with all these useless facts in their head, the author doesn’t know proper rigging techniques.

  4. Ah man – now I gotta research Nevada trout rivers. Could prove interesting — I’ll let you know how it turns out…
