i was became familiar with two handers after my accident and perhaps i have over compensated as a result. however, i can cast a two hander farther and more accurately than i could ever cast one of the single hander 12 wts. it just easier to get the distance if i let that long lever do the work. there are some problems when fishing in a boat but so long as there is someone else to help i don't usually have a problem. my solution for the kayak problem was to get one of the hobie pedal type. with one hand it is difficult to steer and play the fish but in the saltwater i fish it isn't generally a huge problem. on occasion i will hook a large crevalle jack and it's best to just let them tow me around until they become more tractable.
