OP: you didn't post your score....

15 out of 20, 75%, 3min. 56 sec., How'd I do?

Some of the questions were a little 'suspect'-- i.e. the whip finish question. I always thought that the whip finish was the knot itself, and the tool to tie a whip finish is a whip finisher. Also the sproat question-- I always thought that sproat referred to the bend in a hook, not a hook 'model'. Of course I consider 'hook models' to be brand specific-- TMC 300, TMC 5263, C49S, etc. At one point, I'm sure 'sproat' was a hook model- that was before my time.... Not that big a deal-- just a few things I noticed that seem a little 'generalized'.

I did miss all of the 'slang' terms-- 'ghillie', 'stripey' etc. Never heard of those before. I may have to pull one out of my bag next time i'm fishing with someone just to see their reaction....

I enjoyed the test but was a bit thrown by the European terminology. Took some serious recall to get those sorted out.
