Take an All-New Phil Monahan Fly-Fishing Trivia Challenge 08.31.17

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 feature ten new questions–on subjects as varied as fly inventors, tying materials, and geography–to make you scour the recesses of your brain.

The last quiz produced just one perfect score–give it up for Aaron V–but there were an astonishing 18 people who missed a single question. The most common score held steady st 70%.

The winner of this week’s random drawing will receive a copy of Kirk Deeter’s Trout Tips, from Skyhorse Publishing a new book that involves over 250 simple fishing tips from TU members and supporters for trout anglers of all skill levels… and all the money goes straight to TU to help fix and protect rivers.

The winner of our last quiz (as determined by random.org), and recipient of Ed Engle’s wonderful book Fishing Small Flies, from Stackpole Books, was Stan Zuber, whose score was just about average.

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

Good luck!

  1. 80%

    Of the 2 that I got wrong, one answer is very debatable. While New York and Michigan stock their streams, not all returning steelhead have been stocked.

      1. A good point for discussion. Considering both Rainbows and Browns; the definition of native starts to become somewhat elusive as outside of Europe, do browns have a native range, and rainbows are not much different. The only true native in the eastern and Midwest are the “brookies.” After a generation or two the term native becomes blurred.

        Anyway, I enjoy your quizzes and appreciate your time and effort. THANKS!

  2. A sea run Brook trout is also called a coaster or Salter
    Brook trout running out of lake Michigan are also called coasters

  3. 50%. I got the technique questions right but not history, lgeography or sunfish family, guessed on the literature. It takes many years to amass the knowledge to learn this stuff!

  4. 80% – Learn something new every time. I had no idea a coaster was a type of brook trout. I was thinking it was another name for Coastal Cuthroat.

  5. I also might argue that brook trout in a few cape cod (Mass) streams while often called “salters” have also been know to be called “coasters”.
