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 steelhead rivers, situational fly casts, and fish nicknames.
The last quiz was a bit of a challenge, and there were zero perfect scores. However, a pair of responders missed just a single question, so offer up a golf clap for Alan Burrows and David. The most common score held steady at 70%. An astonishing 88% percent of quiz-takers couldn’t conceive that the IGFA world-record redfish could weigh 94 pounds, 2 ounces–but it’s true!
The winner of last week’s random drawing will receive The Orvis Fly-Tying Guide by none other than the great Tom Rosenbauer. (Available at orvis.com next week!) This essential book on fly tying will teach anyone how to tie flies. All the important techniques are illustrated with color photographs, from starting the thread on the hook to whip finishing. The book lays the basic ground work by fully explaining simple tying techniques, and then progresses to detailed tying instructions for some of the most popular, modern patterns.
The winner of our last quiz–who will receive The Orvis Guide to Leaders, Knots, and Tippets by none other than the great Tom Rosenbauer–is Teamx5, which did not cover itself in glory. I hope there weren’t five people guessing.
So post your score below (or below the post on our Facebook page!) for a chance to win a great video.
