FOUND: Spinning rod and reel

Recommended Posts

Nah, it's just "normal" to reel with left hand for me.  From way back when spinning reels were all left handed.  It dont matter as long as you are comfortable with it.  Except for those who turn a spinning reel upside down and crank it bckwards, now that is just wrong!

I'm slow this morning, retarded to crank a baitcaster with right hand or retarded to crank a spin rig with left hand? or retarded for using one or the other?

Retarded to do one opposite of the other. Do you hold your fork in the right hand to eat meat, and the left hand to eat veggies?    

I'm probably gonna get in trouble for this one but I just have to share it..... A buddy and I was having the right/left discussion at a restaurant one morning over breakfast, and I said "well then why are you holding your fork with your left hand?".   Without even a second of hesitation he goes.... "Because I jack off with the right".     Spit coffee into my biscuits and gravy, and had to go outside to collect myself.

Fork in right hand unless the meal is something (steak, for example) that necessitates a knife.

At which point knife in right hand and fork in left.

 (I do use left retrieve for spin cast and right for baitcast).

This discussion reminds me of a story and warning to not overthink things.

The whole town gathered at the square one Saturday afternoon. Seems Mr. Hodges' beard had finally grown long enough that the fella from the Guinness Book of World Records was coming to measure and possibly award a world record.

After all was said and done, Mr. Hodges did in fact have the longest beard. 

At the conclusion of the press conference, a final call was made to ask if anyone had anything else to ask..

One little boy stuck up his hand and asked : "Do you sleep with your beard under or on top of the covers?"

Mr. Hodges said he wasn't sure, but that he'd let the little boy know once he decided..

Mr. Hodges never got another good night of sleep....

According to many, that's the way it is supposed to be.  Especially the guides I've gone with.  I can do either way now.

Retarded guides exist.   Even 16 year veterans.....as was proven in the latest tragedy.

I can go either way but I buy left handed bait casters because I like to use dominant hand to hold the rod.  Grew up fly fishing so it just feels natural.

Guy at Bass Pro said left handed BC'ers weren't as good as the right handed in the same model.  I asked him how the CNC milling machine knew which was which. :)

THat was my thoughts when i started using left hand baitcasters, i would rather let my dumb left hand do the stupid work, and control the fish with my dominant hand
