Take an All-New Phil Monahan Fly-Fishing Trivia Challenge 10.08.15

Welcome to another edition of our 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 ask you to identify 20 fly-rod species by their Latin names. How many biology fans we got out there? Don’t worry: there are plenty of easy ones. . . .

The performance on the last quiz was quite a step up from the previous one. There were three perfect scores—achieved by Steve Root, Stephen Fitch, and Jake—and six of you scored 90%. This includes Katherine, who got 100% but admitted to looking up one of the answers.

The randomly chosen winner for this quiz will receive a copy of the great book from our own Tom Rosenbauer, The Orvis Guide to Family-Friendly Fly Fishing.

Our last winner (as determined by random.org)—who will receive Jim Cramer’s Become a Thinking Fly Tier: The Way to Rapid Improvement was John Zimmer, who didn’t exactly ace the test but came out with the prize anyway.

So post your score below for a chance at winning Tom’s book. . .signed by the man hisself.

Good luck!
