RE:Casting vs. Reeling Hand...

Marvin - I was about to comment about the seeming preponderance of lefties... Alas I'm a righty.

Pete - I think I read the same point about dominant hand reeling (I think it may have been in one of the "Lefty's Little Library..." books). At any rate, I attempted to follow it last year when sw fishing. Maybe it's just me (or an indictment of my skill level), but I found it counterintuitive. When spinfishing I reel lefty as well, so I found myself overthinking my right retrieve, occasionally missing a strike, and in general feeling out of sorts.

Juro - terrific new site; it's making me antsy for ice-out.
