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.

I use both hands depending on which side of the river and wind direction. I also tend to overpower the rod and will sometimes change hands to back off on the power.
some days one hand just works better than the other.
