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.

Left/right Reel

Most reels can be changed to use with the left or right hand. To do so there is an internal click that has to be reversed, sometimes a part turned over, and the line has to be pulled off and respooled with the oposite direction of winding.

I am still learning to use both hands and still use backhand more for the left side of the river.
