Take a Classic Phil Monahan Fly-Fishing Trivia Challenge 10.12.17


Written by: Phil Monahan

Welcome to the latest 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 quiz, featuring twenty (20!) questions about the locations of famous fly-fishing rivers and lakes. In each case, the correct answer is a well-known water, so just because you have a Henrys Fork in your backyard in Peoria doesn’t mean that “Illinois” is the correct answer.

The last quiz broke our string of imperfection, as a single person finally all the questions right. All hail Shoo-Fly! The number of respondents who scored 90% also climbed by one, to seven. The most common score jumped again, to an impressive 70%.

The winner of this week’s random drawing will receive Tom Rosenbauer’s great new book The Orvis Guide to Hatch Strategies: Successful Fly Fishing for Trout Without Always Matching the Hatch, from Universe Publishing. Instead of focusing on insect identification, in this book Tom stresses learning how to approach trout, how to find where they feed, and how to present the fly so it is accepted as natural food.

The winner of our last quiz (as determined by random.org), and recipient of a copy of Kirk Deeter’s Trout Tips, was Brian, who pitched one right down the middle.

So post your score below for a chance to win a great book.

Good luck!

    25% is just terrible luck. I did get the Oregon and a few of the Texas spots correct. Need to travel more to fish, but that isn’t in the cards soon.

    No chance for a european when it comes to north american river and fishwater geography without taking google maps. Randomly taking third position gives you 30%.
