In the simplest of descriptions the Alabama Rig (or sometimes referred to as the "A-Rig") is the bass fishermans means to present an artificial school of bait-fish to their prey. There are generally two styles of these lures: 1) 3-wire set-ups and 4-wire set-ups. In general the A-Rig has wire arms (3 or 4 depending on the particular lure youre using) extending from a central post with each arm and central post designed to mount separate lures. The center of the wire arms is a molded lure head and a straight wire extends back from it and holds another lure. Each arm (or wire) may be bent to varying angles and each has a simple swivel to attach the lure. When properly assembled the Alabama Rig resembles a school of bait-fish and let me tell you so far has proven a sure-fire weapon in the tackle arsenal of serious anglers.
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.
