Ambidextrous Tenkara?

by Bill Piatek

I'm a righty but I used to fly fish lefty occasionally. Now that my right shoulder is nearly shot I've been thinking about ambidextrous tenkara fishing.

Seems to me it might be nice for those spots where it's hard to get a cast off.

Anybody do a lot of tenkara with the non-dominant arm?

The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
