Welcome to another edition of our almost 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 another classic quiz, featuring questions about fly-fishing history, geography, and trout behavior.
On the last quiz, there were just two perfect scores, two fewer than on the previous quiz. Everyone gives a big hand for Stephen Fitch and Tim S. Nine folks missed just a single question. The most common score jumped up to a 60%.
The randomly chosen winner of this week’s quiz will receive a cool trio of decals from the “Pig Series” by artist Nate Karnes, who has been featured on this blog before.
The winner of our last quiz (as determined by random.org) was DenverDan, who commented, “Florican Bustard…who knew?”
So post your score below for a chance at some great stickers.

A little better 70%
30% the first time, 100% second time around. I feel smarter now, thanks!
This is the 2nd time that I have scored 100% and you have not said that I did. Do I have to be one of your buddies to get mentioned. Do not try and make up another excuse because you did not mention it the last time and you did not do it this time.
That’s the spirit. Now they’ll mention you.
Hi Ken, I do not see a comment from you that says you got a 100%. In fact, according to my records, this is the first comment you have ever left. Am I missing something?
Yea you are missing something. The first time I got 100% and wrote you you said that you put my name in your article. Now you say that I did not send anything. You did not put in then and you did not put it in this time. I know what my name is and it has not appeared either time.
80% very cool

40% is not good…. But that just means better chances for improvement!
The best way to take the quiz is to look up the ones you don’t know and then save the sites you found them on. You can read them over the weekend or during the week.
