Question Newby casting hand grip question

Hello, I'm new to the forum and new to fly fishing. Most of the info I've seen on the grip recommends the thumb on top grip. There were a few references to the index finger on top grip, and I find that grip more natural for me. It has more of a feeling that the rod is an extension of my arm than the thumb on top grip. Is there any strong reason not to use the index finger on top grip, or any way that it will limit my future casting ability?

Thanks,
Bob
