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 ten new questions to tickle the ol’ gray matter and see how much you know about fish biology, fly names, and angling literature.
The last quiz must have been a toughie, as there were zero perfect scores. Two people missed just one question, so offer a consolation golf clap for Winston and Bob T. There were ten 80%s, and eight 70%s, as well. The most common score jumped up to a 40%. We’re gonna need to grade this puppy on a curve.
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 Jason Randall’s Nymph Masters: Fly-Fishing Secrets from Expert Anglers, was Bob I, whose score was quite popular.
So post your score below for a chance to win a great book.
