Welcome to another edition of our (we hope) 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’re back with another ten new questions about famous fly tiers and their creations.
The last quiz was another difficult one, and there was again just a single perfect score. The man who achieved that score, Nico Sunseri, accompanied his comment with a single word: Boom!
Boom, indeed, sir. Last week’s perfect scorer, Stephen Fitch, was joined by Andrew Dober in missing just a single question.
Two randomly chosen winners 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 Brian, whose 55% wasn’t actually bad at all.
So post your score below for a chance at this awesome prize.

GUYS, get your facts straight!! From Kelly’s website re circus peanut:
“This fly was designed by Russ Madden when he worked for me in Traverse City, Michigan. Simply put, I think this may be the best streamer on the planet today…enough said. Colors: olive, black, white, bright green. Size: 4 Articulated.”
BTW scored 70%
Wow! You got me there, Bill. I have always thought of this as a KG pattern, and when I went to check on my answers (which I do), I just googled it. The first page of the Google search turned up:
Fly Tying: Kelly Galloup’s Articulated Circus Peanut
Fly Tying – Kelly Galloup’s Circus Peanut
Kelly Galloup’s Articulated Circus Peanut
But if I had read deeper, I would have learned that Russ Madden was the guy. Thanks for the correction. I’ve gone back and changed that question.
Good catch by Bill but the question was who was KNOWN for the pattern, as in who made it popular.
That to me was a trick question
50% a couple of good guesses
50% with some mighty fine wild guessing
