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 definitely on the difficult side, as there were NO perfect scores and just three 90%s (congrats to Richard, Garrett, and Justin). That hasn’t happened in a while.
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 Troutsneak, whose score was not something to brag about but who still gets a free, signed book just for commenting.
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.

Got a 60% never fly fished in Saltwater.
100% . I did guess on a couple.
Not sure how knowing Crazy Reese’s identity will help my fly fishing (certainly not as much as a reach cast) but I guess that’s why it’s a trivia contest.
Thanks for the diversion.
30% could be worse I suppose
30% – rough…
