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 serve up another ten questions, fresh from the mind of the Quizmaster and Uncle Google.
The last quiz knocked y’all for a loop, as there were no perfect scores. However, three of you missed just a single question: Al Cravinho, Mikael Pertmann, and Judy W.. The most common score fell back to a 50%. The question about Sunapee trout was a real toughie, but this one surprised me:
Redband, golden, and rainbow trout are all Oncorhynchus mykiss, while the cutthroat is Oncorhynchus clarkii. Looking at some of the other questions, however, I see that I had a couple with some gray area. This week should be more clear-cut. Let’s get those scores back up, people!
The winner of this week’s random drawing will receive a copy of Ed Engle’s wonderful book Tying Small Flies, from Stackpole Books. If you struggle at the vise when trying to create tiny midges, olives, and the like, then this is the book for you.
The winner of our last quiz (as determined by random.org), and recipient of Tom Rosenbauer’s The Orvis Guide to Hatch Strategies: Successful Fly Fishing for Trout Without Always Matching the Hatch, was Allen S, whose score would certainly be helped if we graded on a curve.
So post your score below for a chance to win a great book.
