Take a Classic Phil Monahan Fly-Fishing Trivia Challenge 03.29.18

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 offer ten classic questions about famous river junctions, native fish, and fly tackle.

The last quiz was apparently difficult, as there was just one perfect score, achieve by David, who claimed that he only guessed on two questions. Another seven people scored 90%, and he most common score held steady at 50%.

The winner of this week’s random drawing will receive a a copy of Dave Hughes’s new Essential Trout Flies: 50 Indispensable Patterns with Step-by-Step Instructions for 300 Most Useful Variations. In this new edition—with 1/3 new material, 20 additional patterns, and 300 variations—Hughes addresses the changes in fly preference over the last 15 years, with some old patterns dropped for new styles tied with new materials and tying techniques.

The winner of our last quiz (as determined by random.org), and recipient of a copy of Nick Curcione’s Saltwater Edge: Tips and Tactics for Saltwater Fly Fishing,  was Brad Hudson, who dared to question the Quiz Master’s accuracy. Ahem . . . the river that runs from Wyoming into Montana is not the Clark Fork; it is the Clarks Fork of the Yellowstone.

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

Good luck!

  1. 80%! Not bad… think my mouse slipped on an answer…. ; ) I always wanted a copy of that book. Crossing my fingers.

  2. 80%. One had to read the question about the fly line section carefully as the answer would be different if the tapered line were a double taper rather than a weight-forward line. The word “head” leads the reader to assume that it’s a W-F for which you seek the answer. Sneaky…but fun!
