I'm right handed and have rods on both sides. I tend to want to use the one on the left the most. I think you want to imagine pulling the rod out of the holder and that should be your strongest arm.

Ive got holders on both sides, but tend to use the one in the right the most. I also don't bother to fold in the am a anymore, just slide the fish up in the gap between ama and hull Fromm the back. Occasionally, I'll gaff a fish or net one over the ama from out on the tramps or haka, but thats rare these days
