Take an All-New Phil Monahan Fly-Fishing Trivia Challenge 06.29.17

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 twenty new questions asking you to identify flies by their names. If you believe that there are two correct answers–as occasionally flies are used in more than one way–choose the one that you think is most popular.

The last quiz turned out to be a tough one, as there were no perfect scores and just four 90%s. All hail the almost-perfect crowd: Steve, Stephen Fitch, Kevin E, and Shoo-Fly. The most common score held steady, for the third week in a row, at 50%.

The winner of this week’s random drawing will receive Molly Semenik’s new book, 25 Best Off-the-Beaten-Path Montana Fly-Fishing Streams, from Stonefly Press.

The winner of our last quiz (as determined by random.org), and recipient of Fishtails—a compilation DVD from Beattie Outdoor Productions, was David, who claimed that he “should have gone with my first guesses.”

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

Good luck!

  1. There is a problem with one question. It should read:
    The Mop Fly is
    A dry fly
    A wet fly,
    A nymph
    A streamer
    An abomination against all of nature


  2. Phil, if you use fly patterns that are tied both dry and nymph, and dry and wet, it’s not possible to give a single answer. In the west we fish a lot more Yellow Sally nymphs than dries.

  3. You scored 85%! Pleased with that. Missed the Mop fly too, didn’t know how to characterize it either.
