Take an All-New Phil Monahan Fly-Fishing Trivia Challenge 07.17.14

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. Are you ready for ten all-new questions on subjects ranging from geography to fly patterns to historical figures?

The scores on last week’s Trivia Challenge were overall quite good, with 80% being the most common score; it’s been awhile since we had so many above C range. A couple of tricky questions tripped up most folks (see one below), but there were still seven perfect scores: Congratulations are in order for Roger, Stephan, DWF, Kenneth (two weeks in a row?), Joe Runco, Sue, and Tom C!


As expected, “sparctic char” tripped up most of you in last week’s quiz.

The randomly chosen winner of this weekโ€™s quiz will receive a copy of The Orvis Story, Paul Schullery’s wonderful history of the company. The winner of our last quiz (as determined by random.org) wasย okieflier, who scored a very respectable 80%.

So, take this weekโ€™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. 80% with one glaring mistake on my part, knew the kokanee question but simply hit the wrong answer.

  2. 70%. Craig Sheffer was the brother in A River Runs Through It, right? He didn’t get “hooked” on the sport after making the movie?

  3. 50 percent. Lee’s Ferry surprised me, then I realized I’d gone to the Shenandoah via Harper Lee. Nice sleight of hand, Phil! Still, I legitimately missed all five of my wrong answers.

  4. Well, 50% . . . that’s something. I know half as much as I think I know and half as much as I deserve to know . . . .

  5. 40%. Definitely in control from a statistical pint of view. I’d rather be out of control on the high side.

  6. I got 90% and would have gotten 100% if I hadn’t accidentally skipped the question about the grips!!! ๐Ÿ™
