Ok, here's the deal: I am right dominant abidexterous- which is nice when tying and casting however... I had never tried to tie left handed until I put on a fly tying demo for kids this last weekend. I have a question for the south paws out there. Do you wind up and over like righties or down and under? The reason I ask is because we had much difficulty in getting the thread started and the materials to hold for the left handed students. Is there a trick I don't know? Boy was whip-finishing lefty fun!!! Luke
