Don’t mind that banner up there; Tom’s still busy, and I’m back with another pretty tough quiz. The last one, on the locations of 25 famous fly-fishing spots in the Western Hemisphere, generated some serious consternation and some seriously low scores. Hopefully, there will be some redemption today, as you try to identify the authors of 20 famous fly-fishing books. (No Googling!) The bonus here is that, even if you don’t do very well, you’ve come away with a great reading list!

Don’t mind that banner up there; Tom’s too busy with his super-secret new project to make a quiz this week. (You’ll hear a lot more about that next week.) Plus, I don’t want him to get all the angry e-mails sure to come, because this here quiz I made is tough.

Here’s what you’re in for: you need to identify the locations of 25 famous fly-fishing spots in the Western Hemisphere. Some are river names, some are place names, and some are nicknames. Anyone who can get a 100 on this quiz is a fly-fishing-travel Jedi master. (No Googling!)
