Does it matter?
Right cast, not much reeling, but it would be left.
I usually agree with you Larry, but that is blasphemy!
that explains my problem ,Who knew it was that simple. Thanks
Never really thought about why, just feels natural to me I suppose.
I usually cast with my right and reel with the left, but being ambidextrous I use both hands to remove the fly from the back of my jacket.
Cast right, strip left, reel right - the way that God and Mr. Hardy intended!
Do you animals that cast and reel with your right at least do some sort of embellished baton toss and spin move when switching rod hands?
Cast right handed and reel left handed.
I have absolutely no idea. It just happens.
I am so sick of spey casting especially shooting heads. There is no challenge to it anymore...
Not weird if using a 3 or 4 wt, who needs 2 hands for that? It would be “weird “ casting those rods with 2 hands just to throw out 15-30 ft of line.
Cast right, and usually reel right because most of the old reels I prefer to use were made as "right hand" reels.
Is it not “proper”?
Sorry, I forgot the
‘Twas in jest....
I cast with my right and strip/reel with my left because I feel like I have a little more control with my right. Sometimes I try to cast with my left, but only for the challenge.
