Andy Mac I thought winding

Wed, 2006-11-29 22:50

Andy Mac I thought winding with your left hand is the conventional way for a right hander to fish, that way you are lifting with your dominant arm.

Thats right Jay

Thu, 2006-11-30 11:41

Left hand overheads should be for right handed people like me...that's the way I was brought up to fish, using my strong right hand to lift the rod/fish and the weaker left hand to wind up the line as you drop the rod tip (no strength required for that unless you are winching it up which is poor form) somehow the generations of fishermen that followed seemed to either be too unco to wind left handed or simply bought the only overhead reels available which were right hand wind (for some reason) and have been brought up that way.

If you watch a right handed angler wind up a big fish with their left hand on the rod, they almost always stop and grab the rod with their right hand as well to get any leverage after a few minutes of hard struggle.

It would be interesting to hear how Kasey L sees this, and how he learnt to reel in left handed.

Yeah that's exactly what I do. Having your left hand on the rod is OK for smaller fish but it feels unco lifting the rod with my non-dominant hand when there is a big fish on. Like you said, at some stage during the fight I'll always put my right hand on the rod anyway. I'm going to start fishing the 'proper' way and see if it makes it easier.

Try it with an egg beater first Jay

Thu, 2006-11-30 11:57

The best way to get used to it is either an egg beater or a small baitcaster, The action of casting and immediately retrieving without having to swap hands will increase your hit rate with lure takers and feels so much more comfortable. Then graduate to a proper left hand overhead and I reckon you won;t go back.

Yeah eggbeater first

Thu, 2006-11-30 12:00

My stella has a reversable handle so I'm going to try it with that first. I think it will be good when casting not having to swap hands for the retrieve.

I know Gribbo uses his right arm for leverage and left to wind. I just feel unco doing it that way as I have no problem with lifting with my left and winding with the right. I guess it comes down to personal preference, but I do know that most of the old schoolers were right arm to lift, left to wind - as a right hander.

winding

Thu, 2006-11-30 21:34

hi guys
I've been brought up casting with my right hand and winding with my left. I find it almost impossible to gain the same accuracy and power casting with my left (but that might be due to lack of practice o.O)

As explained above, right handers naturally have stronger right arms (tongue-in-cheek remarks barring), and as I have been brought up winding with my left, this is the way I have grown used to.

Having said that, I also have a right hand wind, left hand pump overhead. I find it helps that when your right arm dies pumping fish after fish on the spinner, switching arms over and using the overhead allows you a few more.

As jigging requires no casting, eventually I hope to be entirely interchangeable between arms, but for now, its right hand wind overhead, and left hand wind spinner.

By the way, boy do I have alot of gear to bring back =P
Almost popped a vein today dead lifting 24kg while test-loading a blank; apparently it deadlifts 30kg, but unfortunately I'm piss weak.

Also, I have a few aluminium Stella power knobs that I'm bringing home.

Pump iron to drop iron!

My strongest or dominant arm

Thu, 2006-11-30 23:20

My strongest or dominant arm is left arm so I hold my rod with my left and wind right. But after a few fish and slimy gloves you need both hands to hang on!! lol
