I think they do make lefty baitcasters. Probably harder to find in a store and you'll have fewer to choose from, just like guns and guitars. I learned how to fish with a zebco and cast with and retrieve with the reel in my left hand, so the transition to a baitcaster was easy. I swap the handle on my spinning reels so I can fish the same way with them, but I cast a spinning reel with my right hand.
