Take an All-New Phil Monahan Fly-Fishing Trivia Challenge 09.04.14

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. This week, we’ve got ten more head-scratchers to activate your brain.

After two weeks of begging for quizzes from readers, I’ve received just two, and they were both very difficult. So let’s change the game. Instead of worrying about writing 10 questions, do you think you can come up with a single good question? If you think you’ve got one, email it to me at monahanp@orvis.com. Each week, one of the question submitters will get a pack of cool stickers. This week, I used a question submitted by Paul Weaver.

The scores on the last Trivia Challenge were pretty spectacular, with 90%(!) being the most common score. The number of perfect scores dropped a bit, though, with 8 folks achieving 100%: Blaine Barringer, Ryan Maas, Doug, Steve Reckner, Dan, Larry, Kenneth, and fausto.


Last week was an impressive display of trout-anatomy knowledge.

The randomly chosen winner of this week’s quiz (and question submitter Paul) will receive packet of super-cool stickers.

The winner of our last quiz (as determined by random.org) was ColoMatt, who claims to have made quite a few guesses.

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. 40 %. Worst result ever.
    Well, I only knew the answer to number 10. The rest was like throwing darts blindfolded… 🙂

  2. 70 percent. Thanks for putting these together, Phil! We’ll see if we can get some questions together to keep the quiz going.
