Did you ever fight a „real“ fish with your left hand as right hander or vice versa ? – I mean really big fish.

Like I said, when I started out most fish were in the 6 to 10 " catagorey, really no need to reel till you were ready to go home.LOL Tony --- On Mon, 4/6/09, DonO <f...@tribcsp.com> wrote: From: DonO <f...@tribcsp.com> Subject: [VFB] Re: Left hand reel To: firstname.lastname@example.org Date: Monday, April 6, 2009, 9:46 AM I, like many my age, grew up as a kid starting off with a bait-caster (if you don't include the cane-pole). For a right-hander, that meant casting with the right and reeling with the right. Then push-button spinning reels came out (Sears). They could be set up either right or left hand. I started with right hand retrieve but ended up swapping to left hand retrieve to match the next invention. The next phase was the under-hung open-face spinning reel (Mitchell 300), right hand on rod, left hand reel. The manual flipping of the bail and multitudes of casts made it more simple if the rod wasn't swapped every cast. I used to laugh at all the people who were so hard-wired that they flipped the open-face reel over to the top position and reeled in backwards. Anyone remember that? --~--~---------~--~----~------------~-------~--~----~ You received this message because you are subscribed to the "VFB Mail" group.
