Poll: Back-handed or Left-handed

When you find yourself on the "wrong" side of the river do you cast back-handed or do you switch hands and cast "left-handed" (assuming your're right-handed)?

I always wanted to be an ambidextrous caster but it remain a goal at this point. I cast back-handed instead of switching hands most of the time.

Although I'd never considered myself ambidexterous, as a beginning spey-caster I learned to cast about equally from either side. At present I have a sore shoulder, so the last two times to the Skagit and Sauk I picked places that would let me fish from my well-shoulder side. I'm going to take Kush's advice and practice cross-body casting -- if it remains necessary.
