I know what you mean on a recovery vessel. You do have the fishing poles I have read that you can use a pole with a tennis ball on the line. I believe a hole is put through the ball and the line threaded through. Tie a washer on the end of the line, then you can toss this over the plane and pull it back in.
Good idea if the wind is blowing towards the launch area of course this would be ideal. Worse case is you sit and fish till the plane comes back.

LOL....I'll at least be carrying my 5mm chest waders....havent ventured out in that pond, but probably fairly shallow....BTW tennis balls, water and my chessie might not make a good combo, might have teeth marks on the fuse! But I will try it for sure.

Thanks gramps and jim for the info and help.
