Welcome to another edition of our weekly trivia challenge, where we test your knowledge of all things fly fishing. It seems like last week’s quiz flummoxed quite a few of you.

Finally, we’ve got a real header for my quizzes, thanks to the genius of Orvis designer James Daley. It depicts me employing my never-fail fishing technique. Don’t try this at home, kids!

The randomly chosen winner of this week’s quiz will receive a signed copy of Tom’s tying book The Orvis Guide to Essential American Flies. This is a great book for anyone who wants to learn not only how to tie these flies, but where they come from and how to fish them.

Last week’s quiz generated a ton of interest from folks intent on winning a pair of Silver Sonic Waders. Well, only one of you could win, and that person was Britton Wesson of Little Rock, Arkansas.
