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, I’ve ginned-up ten new questions about fly patterns, fish species, and history.
The last quiz was another difficult one, as no one achieved a perfect score. However, there were six respondents who scored 90%, so give it up for Ron A, John, Peter D, Stephen Fitch, David, and Josh Filter. Several expressed surprise at the answer he missed. The most common score jumped to a respectable 60%.
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 a copy of Dave Karczynski’s Smallmouth: Modern Fly-Fishing Methods, Tactics, and Techniques,, was LAZ, who punctuation the score with “C’mon Phil!” Hey, I just write ’em.
So post your score below for a chance to win a great book.
