    Default Developing muscle memory in your non-dominant hand

    Next time I'm on the water thrashing about and scaring all the fish away, I'll be giving this a shot. Looks like a fun and fast way to get decent at using either hand on top for spey casting. This guy also has some good vids on welding fly lines (see the other thread)

    And a note about safety -wear your sun glasses. I find that with my left hand up, I often track the rod path too close to vertical and as a result, send the fly toward my face/back of my head. Keeping the rod tip away at the proper angle and staying smooth should prevent this issue though Click here to enlarge

    The few times I've tried off hand casting, I found the crossing my arms,(cack handed?) although it felt awkward, gave me better control of my sweep and casting stroke.

    I think btree is talking about switching hands entirely, as is casting left handed or right. I tried it once, didn't turn out very good.
