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. I’ve got a batch of new questions for you, pulled from the depths of my mind and the Google Machine.
The scores on last week’s Classic Trivia Challenge were fairly dismal, with a cool 50% being the most common score. There was just one perfect score, which belonged to Tom S. On the plus side, y’all crushed question #6:
The randomly chosen winner of this week’s quiz will receive a pack of cool stickers with which to plaster his or her car, boat, truck, guitar, or whatever. Bonus prize: I’ll also send a set of stickers to the first person who mentions the very obscure television reference contained in this quiz. There is only one right answer.
The winner of our last quiz (as determined by random.org) was Mark P, who came oh-so-close with a 90%.
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!

However, Gordon Shumway was the name of everybody’s favorite alien ALF.

Not sure if I am quick enough, but Gordon Schumway is the real name of ALF.

70% – good quiz
6 out of 10 for me…. Some tough ones for a westerner.

50 per cent. Not my best effort but looks like I have a lot of company this week.
Holy crap I got 80%!!
60 percent is my new 100, apparently, and anything above that is extra credit. I also tried to cleverly disguise alf, but expect someone else did better.
