So I use a left handed bait casting reel. I cast with my right and reel with my left. It seems very natural to me. You never switch hands and you are ready as soon as the lure hits the water. Since then I have noticed that some pros had taught themselves to use a left handed reel so they can set the hook with the strong hand and be ready for a quick strike.
I am right handed, but use lefty reels also. It just makes more sense. They never seem to have the left handed models in stock!

I'm left handed and use righty reels, so you ain't got nuttin on me.
The two times you should never worry is when you can control the outcome and when you can't.
