i find, at our local shop, that the right handed anglers, who cast with their right, then switch hands and reel with their right, are of the old(er) generation.
when we sell left handed reels, the majority of the buyers are less than 35 years old (yes, a generalization, but still quite accurate).
I feel that the anglers who grew up fishing bait casters when there simply wasn't the left handed options learned to cast and reel with their right, effectively switching hands.
I further feel that younger anglers, ones who have the option from day one, don't see the need to switch hands, and start with what is comfortable for them.....
Just some rambles while staring out the window at 5' snow piles. Winter can't go fast enough!!
That's pretty interesting. I too, don't see the point in wasting a move. I cast with my right (dominant hand) and reel with my left when it comes to baitcasters. I think my dominant hand does better at thumbing. As far as spinners go, I'm also left hand retrieve.
