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 a classic, featuring questions about fly-tying materials, geography, world records, and more.
The scores on the last quiz represented the second week in a row in which there was a slight improvement over the previous week, as there were five perfect scores. All hail Winston, Joseph Egry, Bob T, Mark Philippe, and Judy W. Just three people scored 90%, a dozen got 80%, and the most common score plummeted, to 40%.
The winner of this week’s random drawing will receive a copy of Dave Karczynski & Tim Lanwehr’s Smallmouth: Modern Fly-Fishing Methods, Tactics, and Techniques, from Stackpole Books. According to the publisher, this is the first book to cover the cutting-edge techniques and fly patterns being used by some of the country’s top fly fishing guides. Though most of these flies and techniques have been developed and refined in the rivers and lakes of the Midwest, anglers can adapt them for their waters.
The winner of our last quiz (as determined by random.org), and recipient of a five-pack of Mangum’s Dragon Tails, was Rick A, whose score above average.
So post your score below (or below the post on our Facebook page!) for a chance to win a great book. And we finally got the answer key back, so you can know exactly what you missed and why.
