Chicago Fly Fishing Outfitters and the Naperville Fly Shop. CFFO is in the city and NFS is in the burbs. They are both great shops. CFFO is really well stocked and they seem to have good intel on the Great Lakes area.Thanks for the recommendation! There seems to be only 2 fly shops in the Chicago. But I'll definitely pick it up when I go to MI for some fishing!
I've only seen the TU booklets at Michigan fly shops. There are a bunch of booklets but most shops only carry a few and some none. Going into Michigan, make sure to go to Grayling, check out Gates and the Old Au Sable Fly Shop; they have up-to-date fishing reports and are helpful people. There isn't really a fly-fishing-for-trout town in Michigan that equals Grayling, in my opinion. The fishing culture can be seen driving down rods and seeing "flies for sale" signs along the rod. It is a nice place to be come trout season.
