Welcome to another edition of our trivia challenge, where we test your knowledge of all things fly fishing and where you might learn a thing or two about this sport we love.
The last quiz was a little tougher than the previous one, as the number of perfect scores fell to five, although we did have thirteen 90s. That’s a lot of near misses.
As usual, the randomly chosen winner of this week’s quiz will receive a signed copy of Tom’s book The Orvis Guide to Small Stream Fly Fishing. This is a great book for anyone who loves getting off the beaten path and chasing blue lines. It provides all the information for finding and fishing unspoiled gems found everywhere from wilderness areas to suburban backyards. Last week’s book winner (as determined by random.org) was Kevin, who was one of those almost-but-not-quite 90-percenters.
So, take this week’s quiz, and no matter how well or poorly you do, post your score in the comments below to be eligible to win Tom’s book with his inspirational words on the title page.
Take Our Quiz!

60% but it is iteroparous not iteoparous — forgot the au sable is in Michigan (which is worse because I was born there).
You are correct! Typo on my part, for which I apologize. On the other hand, while you are correct that the Au Sable is in Michigan, the AuSable (one word) is in New York’s Adirondacks.

Well, I know Hans Van Klinken and I love a River Runs Through It. That’s my 20% score. I really did not fare well this time around, although I should have gotten the Ausable River question right, seeing as I fished that. Apparently my knowledge of geography is not too fantastic either. Next week will be better . . . But I loved this quiz!

Not bad 50% but I really knew Lees ferry question but i was think which river not which state….
