Its possible to fish a bass tournament with a fly rod but check the regulations on rod length. Some tourny's have regs but if you have a short enough rod it doesnt matter.

Go for it! Pick your tournament so the place and the season will most likely have conditions most conducive to fly fishing.

One minor detail is B.A.S.S. and FLW have rules governing what tackle you can use. I think you're okay in an FLW tournament as long as your rod is 8' or less

every year in May Bass N Fly puts on a tournament on the California Delta near Stockton. It is fly fishing only, and a great fishery for flyfishing. Was there a few weeks ago and had a blast.

Also the AZ Fly and Tie groups has a bass fishing tournament in the Phoeinx area usually once per month.

Good luck.
