The lure is called "The Alabama Rig."
It's the newest innovation that's taking the largemouth bass
community by storm. The Alabama Rig is catching so many
fish in the professional bass tournaments that many anglers
are trying to have it banned.

For you fly fisherman who've never heard of an Alabama Rig you might want to
stop right now and go on Google
... then type in "Alabama Rig".
It is actually several lures combined on a wire frame similar to
an umbrella ... known commonly among anglers as "an umbrella rig."
East Coast striper fisherman have been using the umbrella rig to
trawl for stripers for years... But it took a Southern Boy to scale
it down so you could throw it with a casting rod.
(And you thought because we talk slow that we are dumb) :roll:
Now "what" you may ask has this to do with fly fishing? Well if it
works so good as a lure... catching 2, 3, even 4 fish on one cast...
I wonder how it would work as a fly? So having more free time than good sense...
I give you.....
