Welcome to another edition of our nearly-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 offer 10 brand-new questions about fly tiers, famous trout rivers, insects, and more.
On the last quiz, there were just two perfect scores. Stephen Fitch hit the jackpot for the second week in a row, and he was joined in perfection by Bob T. Just four of you scored 90%, and the most common score held steady at 50%.
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 Paul, who achieved a gentleman’s 70%.
So post your score below for a chance at this awesome prize.

I’m on a roll. 3rd week at 50%
A pretty decent (for me) 60%
5 out of 10
A humbling 50%.
My best yet- 70%
Flunked again with a 50%! Oh the agony!
80%. However….The Marquesas are part of french Polynesia out in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Florida?
Ahem. . .
That would be Marquesas Keys (as the map duly notes), not “The Marquesas”…Ahem.
But if I said “Keys,” that would give away the answer. Given the choices, there was only one right answer, I think.
As Mark Twain said: “The difference between the almost right word and the right word is really a large matter. ’tis the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning.”
…perhaps it was just a poor choice of question.
Or, maybe referring to the Marquesas Keys as simply “The Marquesas” is actually a commonplace. Examples:
40%. This week was a challenge.
