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 one’s got 10 new questions that will see how much you know about fly names. (For each question, choose the best answer.)
The last quiz caused some readers to struggle, and there were just two readers scoring a perfect 100%congrats to J Bryan Mines and Frankand five 90%s.
The randomly chosen winner of this week’s quiz will receive a signed copy of Tom’s book The Orvis Guide to Small Stream Fly Fishing. This is the book you need for those times when there is no specific hatch on. Last week’s book winner (as determined by random.org) was Dale Spaller, whose turned a solid C into a free book.
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 Tom’s book with his inspirational words on the title page.
