Take an All-New Phil Monahan Fly-Fishing Trivia Challenge 08.24.17

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 ten more questions to get the synapses firing, on subjects as varied as fly names, book titles, and strange fish species.

The last quiz represented a big comeback, with five perfect scores. Give it up for Erik, Steve B., Peter D., Brad W., and ChuckB. (Where is Erik’s last initial?) The most common score jumped back up to a 70%. Nice work, people!

The winner of this week’s random drawing will receive a copy of Ed Engle’s Fishing Small Flies, from Stackpole Books. Using tiny patterns that are tough to see can be a trial, and hooking trout with those itty-bitty hooks can be challenging, as well. Engle, a longtime guide in Colorado, is full of great ideas to help.

The winner of our last quiz (as determined by random.org), and recipient of Ed Engle’s wonderful book Tying Small Flies, from Stackpole Books, was Ron, whose score was his best yet, to boot.

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

Good luck!

    Who knew a brookie can be called a speckled trout? Must be Northeastern thing! And a Pocket Pin- missed that one- thought it sounded like an old wet fly pattern.

  2. 80%, but……The Gallatin could / should be an acceptable answer as all of the other rivers are dammed during their journeys. Natural state might be more important than home state.

    1. A “sea trout” (two words) is a trout that migrates to the sea. A “seatrout” (one word) is an oceangoing fish (Cynoscion nebulosus), also known as a “speckled trout.”

  3. 80%…and the picket pin is found in my nymph box, not the streamer box.
    Fish the golden stones on the Delaware and you will know why.
