Thanks for the suggestions, Flintcreek. Yes, I probably will have to invest some more money for a system that will work for me. There are some dynamite spots on my home stream that are only fishable with a kayak, canoe or float. One spot in particular is an old mill converted into a house with a bridge with nice deep abutments, including a long pool that has just got to be loaded with fish that rarely see a fisherman.
thanks again,
