RE:Casting vs. Reeling Hand...

I am right handed and strip and reel with my left hand.
With two exceptions my 7 and 12 weights, I set these up right handed to fight bonefish and tarpon. I want to be able to reel with my dominant hand when these fast fish decide to swim back at me as fast as they went out. It can be confusing when I am using the 7 to catch schoolies. I still strip with the left hand but have to switch the rod should a fish get on the reel which does not happen very often with these little fish.
