I'm curious as to what Lefty thinks of your unique casting style There are times when I wish i was ambidextrous. I tend to be like the guy in your Elkmont story - I wade across to free up my right-hand cast.
It always seemed to me that the majority of the streams in the park are to the left of the road with an occasional pass under and to the right. Most of the East Prong is to the left of the road as you drive upstream. Even going up Tremont, most of the stream is to the left of the road. I always seem to be driving for miles to find a stretch that's to the right of the road - and that drives my left-handed son crazy
