Welcome to another edition of our not-quite-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, it’s a classic quiz that features questions about geology, tying materials, and caring for your gear.
On the last quiz, there were zero perfect scores, for the second week in a row, and just two people scored 90%: Matthew M and Nick H. However, the most common score jumped up to 60%. The question that beguiled most quiz-takers was about where rainbow trout are native. Only 8% of you knew that rainbows are native to the upper Kootenai River drainage, in the northwestern corner of Montana.
The randomly chosen winner of this week’s quiz will receive his or her choice of an Orvis Fly Selection, featuring patterns chosen by Orvis-endorsed professional guides.
The winner of our last quiz (as determined by random.org) was Aaron, who pitched one right down the middle.
So post your score below for a chance at this awesome prize.
