Most guys who fish conventional crank with their right hand, which is "normal". I crank with my left hand and thus use "lefty" reels. But with spinning, cranking with your left hand is just as common if not more so than cranking with your right.BUMP
and a question....i've always thought of myself as right handed, but i like to hold the rod in my left hand, and crank in my right. (that doesn't sound good) am i fishing left handed?
Conventional = right hand cranking is normal.
Spinning = left hand cranking is normal.
