longlining up a river
Posted by chief on May 11 2003
I want to drag a canoe up a river in a "no motorized vehicle" area and leave it there for moose season.  I've heard people say they "long-lined" boats up rivers, does anybody know the theory behind longlining?  Every time I've tried towing a boat upstream from the shore it beaches itself below me.  The best way I've found is to have one person pulling a rope and another using a long pole to keep the boat off the shore, but this only works where the walking is good.  The river I'm talking about is a glacial river with alder banks and very few good walking banks.  Any tips?
