RE:Casting vs. Reeling Hand...

Pete- I've been switching from castin with my right hand to reeling with my right hand since I began flyfishing about 8yrs ago. Have no problem with the switch because I make up my mind to reel in rather than strip in when the fish makes its first run. The longer the run the more time you have to make-up your mind. I generally only reel in with a large fish or one thats being stubborn otherwise I strip the line with my left hand and then switch(if need be) to release the fish. Basically its a matter of personal preference- do what works for you. just my .02 rel
