A fly fishing rod needs to do several jobs. Firstly it must cast the line which requires strength and spring so that it can act like a catapult to shoot the line great distance when needed - or very accurately and gently when thats the order of the day. Secondly it must retrieve the line which requires sensitivity so you can feel the line as it is recovered and know when a fish takes the fly. Thirdly it must fight the fish which requires the ability to cushion the leader and soak up the shocks as the fish runs and jumps. Finally it must be transportable which means that it must be capable of being manufactured in sections which come together to act as a whole when assembled.
In general terms youre going to need a 7-8 foot fishing rod that is at least medium heavy power and with rod action in the moderate to fast action. Your rod blank and rod hardware should be capable of handling anywhere between 20-65 pound braided line and youre going to require a fishing reel that can support the additional torque and load of the retrieve (at least a 6:4:1 ratio). Choose a higher ratio reel for faster retrieves (like a 7:1:1) and be sure to select a reel that is nice and smooth so as not to tangle youre the individual baits in mid-air. Braided line is better designed to handle the intricacies of the Alabama Rig to include: casting retrieval hook set as well as fighting and landing your fish. Braid has less stretch is more durable and overall more responsive to the conditions you will encounter when using this particular fishing lure. Additionally using a heavier braided line will allow you to retrieve youre A-Rig in the event that you get hung up (because they are not cheap and the lure itself starts out in the $25 range and go up in price depending on the price of the lures your place on your rig).
