for off-shoulder casts (wrong wind, wrong side) how many of you are casting cackhanded, vs. switching hands?
If I'm reading the above correctly, I too fall into that z;iufxf!! I can cast either hand up, but there are casts that I just can't pull off (as in almost at all) depending upon which hand is higher on the rod. As an example, river right and right hand up I can really chuck a snake roll. Don't ask me to do a Circle or snap t ... river right or no, I have to have the left hand up or it's 'game over.'I don't like/haven't figured out the cack-handed Circle Spey, so I switch hands for that. I can cack-hand the Double Spey pretty good, but it just doesn't feel right to me, so I've been switching hands for that.
Since I have gone almost exclusively to skagit - used to love the long line but shoulder and elbows problems have caused me to stick with one system - I am for sure cackhanded - it takes a bit less time on the river to stay with one hand up and I am truly left hand stupid!! I think if I had stayed with long lines, I might have tried to learn left hand up but my cackhanded casts are just as strong if not stronger than my other casts
