Take a Classic Phil Monahan Fly-Fishing Trivia Challenge 05.10.18

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 another classic quiz, featuring 10 questions, some of which might be a tad tricky, so read carefully before you answer.

The previous quiz was another difficult one, producing just two perfect scores (although that doubles the previous week’s total). Give it up for Matthew M. and Steve.  Additionally, there were seven people who missed just one question. Remarkably, the most common score was 80% (also a 100% improvement over the previous quiz).

The winner of this week’s random drawing will receive a free digital copy of “Modern Nymphing Elevated,” in which anglers Devin Olsen and Lance Egan offer thorough instruction and theory to advance your understanding and effectiveness on the water. Casting, common drift mistakes, arm & rod positioning, managing line & leader, sighter angles, strike detection, drift principles, stream positioning, approach, and many other elements are meticulously covered to provide an in-depth nymphing masterclass.

The winner of our last quiz (as determined by random.org), and recipient of the video above,  was Andy Witt, whose score was a “gentleman’s C.”

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 percent! A personal best (and I kick myself for not answering “none of the above” on one question — “none of the above” is always the right answer).

    1. Created in the 1930s by angler and tier Cliff Zug of West Lawn, Pennsylvania, the Zug Bug was promoted by Arnold Gingrich in his popular articles and became a go-to fly from the Catskills to the Sierras.

  2. Hey Phil:

    In Q.4 Which of these books is NOT a famous fly-casting instructor? None of the answers are books, are they? Or am I missing something?
