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.
You had to know that this one would come eventually, even though you dreaded it: the entomology quiz. Now, I know that knowledge of Latin names has nothing to do with fly-fishing success. But like it or not, fly-fishing literature is rife with taxonomies. So, why not check to see how much you know? If you score a 100% on this baby, you’ll have bragging rights for a long time, I assure you.
The scores on last week’s Trivia Challenge were down from the scores of the week before. In all, there were just two 100%—big ups to Peter Hawken and John Flandro, whose comments were actually right next to each other—and two 90%s, as well. I also applaud another self-confident soul who posted his 0% score in hope of winning the book. Even a horrendous score doesn’t lower your chances of winning.
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 Vincent, who scored low enough that all he could say was, “Well!!!” But he still gets a free, signed book outta the deal.
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.
