The thumb grip is a much better way to start out as juro said. I've been fly fishing for 17 years and only this year did I start to use the index finger grip occassionally. The only reason is when I'm bass fishing for hours and my hand gets tired of casting the heavy flies, so I switch up my grip for a while.
