When using a threadline reel, what percentage of anglers in our forum would cast with the rod held in their right arm and retrieve the line with the reel handle mounted on the left side of the reel?

The reason I ask is because the Aussies have the reel handles on the RIGHT side of their reels and believe that this is the correct way !

They cast out with their right arm and then swop the rod to the left arm, and reel in with their right hand.

No matter how much one tries to convince them that the rest of the world does it differently .. they won't budge in their technique.

Any one know if there are others who fish in a similar fashion?

There could be a logic in this method. If you are targeting big saltwater species, i.e. GT, then the right arm would tire less in working the handle and fighting the fish.

Trust Aussies to teach us things we do not know!!!

I prefer my spinning and bait casting reels with a left hand wind as I believe you play the fish with the rod and arm, and so the rod should be in your strong hand, (being right handed, that is my strong hand). I am of the strong opinion, that these reels should be used to wind and not winch the fish in. Initially it is uncomfortable to use the left hand to wind for a right hander, so there are a lot of people who will take up winding with their dominant hand and don't bother, I remember practicing winding with my left hand at home when I just took up spinning, it takes some time getting used to but once you get it you will not want to use a right hand wind. In fact I have specially ordered left hand wind bait casters because all the ones off the self here were right handed.

With big game setups I like the right hand wind as you play the fish with your legs and weight, and there is a lot of reeling and hard winding bordering on winching, so I need my stronger hand.

I feel the setup is more balanced when winding with right hand( I am right handed). I was not at all comfortable when I tried winding with left hand.
