Equally important as the length of the rod is its power. Power is a relative assessment comparing one rod against another. So we need a way to make this comparison of one rod with another. We can then decide the fly line that can be used with that rod and the reel needed to accommodate that line. Its like making sure all the pieces of the jigsaw fit. The standard way of describing this quality of power in a rod is by giving it an AFTM rating. That stands for American Fishing Tackle Manufacturers Association. This has long been accepted as the best way to ensure that you are matching rods reels and lines for maximum effectiveness. Its a bit like making sure that you have the right tyres for your car and that you are using the right kind of fuel - it may work OK with something else but not at full potential. We need to understand this AFTM system if we are to make sure all the pieces of equipment including the rod work together.
When times are tough folks in the United States dont just sit back and rest on their laurels... they go fishing. When fishing is slow those same Americans allow natural innovation and ingenuity to take hold of their thoughts and thats when those world-class ideas hit you "like a ton of bricks." Whether that anglers thoughts have wandered to "the next best boat cup holder" "a lure adjustment to get to the right depth or have the right wiggle bobble splash or other subdued action" or "just another technical approach on how that angler is going to fill the live well with their targeted game-fish"... it just happens. That same angler comes up with a new idea approach or technique that not only makes common sense... but fantastic fishing-sense! The newest fishing lure to hit the water the Alabama Rig is no different because to fish one just makes sense.
