Take an All-New Phil Monahan Fly-Fishing Trivia Challenge 07.31.14

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. 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 vast majority of you know when to make a reach cast.

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.

Good luck!

  1. 70% – Got a lucky guess on the what country in Europe question, but missed the River Runs through it question! Thought it was dinner…ah well, at least I didn’t cheat.

  2. 60% Holding my average! Glad I’m not a mountain brook trout. I would have been belly up 62 year ago. lol

  3. Scored 50% in the trivia quiz and I have never stepped foot on USA soil! Made my day downunder ! Great quiz Phil!

  4. 70%

    Gotta say being a Missoulian, I both love and hate the River Runs Through It references you’ve been having.

  5. 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.

  6. 100% (one very lucky guess). I would also like to add that there is also a Junction Pool where the East and West Branches of the Delaware join below Hancock.

  7. 50% Most of the people I know in Montana work in fishing and hunting. So, isn’t hunting a good answer?

  8. 70%. Should have got 80% as I did pick Oregon first but for some reason I changed it to Montana. Still pretty good!

  9. 40%. ‘Bout average for me. I did know “a river runs through it” though. Didn’t know Alf but got that question right.
