Take an All-New Phil Monahan Fly-Fishing Trivia Challenge 01.11.18


Written by: Phil Monahan

Welcome to the first 2018 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, you can try to tackle ten new questions that cover everything from fly-fishing celebrities to insect species to geography.

Performance on last quiz was clearly full of stumpers, as no one got a perfect score. However, there were five people who missed just one question: Scott Fisher, ron, Zach, Steve B, and Jacob. The most common score plummet like last weekend’s temperatures, to 40%.

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 five-pack of Mangum’s Dragon Tails, was dstone, who wasn’t particularly proud of his score.

So post your score below for a chance to win a great book. And we finally got the answer key back, so you can know exactly what you missed and why.

Good luck!

    70%. A Conan quote is about the furthest thing from what I expected to see on the quiz…but did get that one right at least.

    70%. I think question 9 was a matter of opinion rather than of fact. I’m really not a Conan the Barbarian sort of person, so crushing my enemies is not high on my list…further, floating in a drift boat is nice, but much more fun if one has a fly rod in hand. Was a fun quiz, though.
