So just throwing a question out there. I just read the article about calgary hosting the canadian fly fishing championship and my question is this:

Are there any fly fishing tourney/rally in the USA specifically the midwest since I am from Illinois? I'm not looking for a pro setting, more or less a get together of like-mided fly fishermen have a friendly competition.

I thought about trying to get a few forum members together for some carp or smallmouth fishing down here but wouldn't know where to begin. I have been reading about some conventional tackle carp tournaments down here in joliet and chicagoland area but the locations would not be conducive with fly fishing. So does anyone want to come out this summer for either a carp or smallie rally? Illinois Fly Fishing Carp Rally 2013, a nice ring lol. Thanks in advance for the input.
