Take an All-New Phil Monahan Fly-Fishing Trivia Challenge 12.13.18

Welcome to another edition of our weekly trivia challenge, in which 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 10 all-new questions about native trout, world records, famous authors, and lots more!.

The last quiz was a toughie, and just one people scored 100%. All hail Dave Ting! Only slightly less impressive was Dan G, who missed just a single question, and the most common score held steady at 50%.

The winner of this week’s random drawing will receive Tom Rosenbauer’s great book The Orvis Guide to Hatch Strategies: Successful Fly Fishing for Trout Without Always Matching the Hatch, from Universe Publishing. Instead of focusing on insect identification, in this book Tom stresses learning how to approach trout, how to find where they feed, and how to present the fly so it is accepted as natural food.

The winner of our last quiz (as determined by random.org), and recipient of a copy of Andrew Weiner’s Down by the River: A Family Fly Fishing Story, is rez, whose score was exceedingly common.

So post your score below (or below the post on our Facebook page!) for a chance to win a great book.

Good luck!

  1. I guessed I would score 60% before checking my score.
    That seems to be the only correct response I felt confident with in this quiz.

  2. 50% – just a suggestion but can we have a few less questions on US geography and rivers; some of us aren’t from the States and there’s more to fly fishing than knowing what species are US natives or the geography of US rivers etc.

  3. 100% thanks to Wikipedia and a few WAGs. But, wait a minute, isn’t the Mike Trout’s Latin name “Salmo Baseballis”?

    Would be helpful if after completing the Quiz a respondent could just click a link to come directly to this answer-entry page.
