Welcome to another edition of our (usually) 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 come up with twenty (20!) new questions about the locations of famous fly-fishing rivers and lakes.
The last quiz was another difficult one, producing just one perfect score, achieved by Steve. Two quiz-takers—Ed Weber, and John McGee—missed perfection by a single question, and the most common score was well below normal.
The randomly chosen winner of this week’s quiz will receive a copy of the latest issue of Tail fly fishing magazine. Tail has been an online publication for four years, but the new issue is their first to go to print. It features great saltwater articles and photos, and it’s good news that we finally have another saltwater print publication to peruse.
The winner of our last quiz (as determined by random.org) was AJ, who didn’t think his 30% was too shabby.
So post your score below for a chance at this awesome prize.
