RE:Casting vs. Reeling Hand...

Pete,
Amazing how many of us leftys seem to be out there, considering we're what, 10% of the population? Anyway, with fly gear, I cast with my left and reel right. Tried switching a few years back, but didn't feel comfortable with it. So far, I've been able to keep up with the fish, but wouldn't mind hooking something that could greatly outswim my reeling . I've never bothered to pick up a lefty spinning reel, so all of mine reel left. And my conventional reels are reel-right.

Adding to the confusion, I'm right-eyed, so I shoot righty with gun or bow.

Marvin
