So what type of fishing rod is required to cast one of these new contraptions and how do you fish an A-Rig? For starters youre going to need a heavier outfit to cast the Alabama Rig. Its not the weight of the rig (approximately 3/8 ounces with no lures) but depending on the size and weight of the individual lures can weigh in upwards of 3+ ounces (or the equivalent of a large West Coast swim bait or muskie lure). So if youre accustomed to fishing a lighter rod better hit the gym and bulk up those casting muscles or better yet just be sure your armed with a fishing rod designed for casting (and retrieving) this particular lure. So again what type of rod will I need? Well it depends on the lures your throwing the water you are covering and the technique your using but a good place to find the right rod for you is to design the perfect Alabama Rig custom fishing rod.
The grain is the only common weight in both these systems and thus there are a different number of grains to the pound depending on which weight system you are addressing. Confusing isnt it? There are 7000 grains to the pound avoirdupois which is divided into 16 ounces of 437 grains each. There are 5760 grains to the troy pound which is divided into 12 ounces and then into 20 pennyweights of 24 grains each. Both the avoirdupois and the troy system were in use in different parts of the world at the same time with different actual weights for the pound and ounce. This is the reason why the grain was chosen to weigh fishing lines - it didnt matter which weight system you normally used - the grain weight was the same. Just to complete the confusion and for those of a metric disposition 1 grain = 0.0648 grams. So it was unimportant where in the world you were and what the local weight system was old fly lines were described by their grain weight which measured the weight of the first 30ft (9.14m) of the line. Each line was individually weighed and could have a grain weight that was unique to it and might be only slightly different from another line. This idea of weighing fly lines in grains overcame the problem faced by the British colonials who might be in India or South Africa or in many other outposts and needed to order their fly line from the home country as no lines were made in the country they were currently residing in. They could ensure that they were ordering what they needed without reference to their current countrys weight measurement system.
