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 scores on last week’s quiz were pretty outstanding, with eight 100%s, which might be the most ever (well done, 2manydogs, Jason, Adam, Lee, johnnydajeweler, pdfish, Justin, and doug!). I must be getting soft. This one has a couple of easy ones and a couple of doozies, so we’ll see if the trend continues.

The randomly chosen winner of this quiz will receive a signed copy of Tom’s book The Orvis Guide to the Essential American Flies. This is a great book for anyone who wants to learn a little history about time-tested patterns, as well as learn how to tie them. Last week’s book winner was Joe L., who got a decent score, but wondered “What does Greek philosophy have to do with fly fishing any way?” He will receive the book, one of Tom’s rabbit’s feet, and a fly tied by the Great Mr. Rosenbauer himself.

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 scrawlings on the title page.

Good luck!
