I'm with john8 and Leo. I learned 50+ years ago from my father to fly fish with a Pflueger reel, which was right hand reel. I never considered switching, because to me, Pflueger was the ultimate. All dad's Mitchell spinning reels were left hand wind, so I learned to cast right and retrieve right (fly), and cast right, retrieve left (spinning).

Bob - we have a lot in common or we learned from the best 😀. Same Pfleugers which were replaced by Hardy’s and Mitchell 300 spinning reels. Still have all these reels today.

I have been fishing a long time and have never reeled with my right hand...and I can’t see why a right handed person would...so why are 90% of the Rees on Spinoza RHW?

As a righty, try reeling in a 120Lb tarpon with your left hand, you will quickly find the answer to the question.
