Take an All-New Phil Monahan Fly-Fishing Trivia Challenge 06.21.18

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 10 all new questions about famous fly tiers, geography, fish species, and lots more.

The last quiz didn’t stump as many folks as the last few, and there were four perfect scores. So give it it up for Lance, Erik, Chris Gil, and shoo-fly*. (The last one gets an asterisk,as he noted that his score “took a little research.”) Seven people missed by just a single question, and the most common score leaped up three spots to 60%. Now, that’s more like it.

The winner of this week’s random drawing will receive Jay Zimmerman’s great new book The Best Bass Flies: How to Tie and Fish Them, from Stackpole Books. The book features 18 cutting-edge patterns from around the country for largemouth and smallmouth bass, explains how to fish them, and has detailed tying steps.

The winner of our last quiz (as determined by random.org), and recipient of a copy of Ed Engle’s Fishing Small Flies,  was docB, who got higher marks in medical school, I hope.

So post your score below (or below the post on our Facebook page!) for a chance to win a great book.

Good luck!

  1. How can a green weenie be a nymph when it is the larva of a terrestrial moth? Barry Beck was one of the first to use it, Charlie Meck added a tail and dubbed it the Green weenie. If anything, it’s a sunken dry fly AKA wet fly.

  2. 70%. I am not sure exactly how a caterpillar can be defined as a nymph but Phil is as good an arbitrator as anyone on this.

  3. Ron from Fins and Feathers scored 70%!

    For a retired guy, that’s pretty good.
