Take an All-New Phil Monahan Fly-Fishing Trivia Challenge 09.14.17

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. Here is a fresh set ten questions, designed to delve into the dark corners of your gray matter. There are easy ones and tough ones, and even a tricky one or two.

The last quiz produced the same number of perfect scores–three–as the previous week. Len S claims it’s the first time he’s scored over 70; Joseph Bartholomew wrote, “Finally” followed by no fewer than four exclamation marks; and Shoo-Fly attributed his score to “dumb luck,” despite the fact that he’s been perfect twice before. The number of 90s climbed to six, and the most common score edged up to 60%. See the image below for an explanation of the most-missed question in last week’s quiz.


The Gallatin is the only river NOT a tributary of the Yellowstone.

The winner of this week’s random drawing will receive a copy of Bob Clouser’s Fly-Fishing for Smallmouth: in Rivers and Streams, from Stackpole Books. The author shares the extensive knowledge he has developed over a quarter-century of guiding for smallmouth bass and serves up 32 of his favorite patterns

The winner of our last quiz (as determined by random.org), and recipient of a signed copy of Charlie Craven’s Tying Nymphs: Essential Flies and Techniques for the Top Patterns, was Carl, who flummoxed that anyone would call a fly a Cat Puke.

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

Good luck!

  1. I wasn’t sure of many. I decided to have a bit of fun and have my wife take the quiz. 10%! Won’t be doing that again. I might have hit 50%. Either way, quite poor!

  2. Took a beating this week and only scored 50%. But in a brief glance through the comments posted here it seems as though there are a lot of low scores this week.
