I gotta disagree Scott (even though you were clearly the trout master on Friday!) Most of my bigger river fish (including the one in my avatar taken from the Methow) were taken either throwing big streamers at the bank or pounding the bank with a hopper/dropper. You can't do that wading from the shore, only with fins in your pontoon or a drift boat with someone else rowing. In the case of the fish in my avatar, I was in the rowers seat of my two man pontoon with my wife in the front. I hooked him and kicked like crazy to the opposite bank where there was a shallow slope. I stood up in the shallows, played him and netted him while my wife looked on. I do that all the time with a fish hooked and I don't recall every losing a fish that way. BTW, Force Fins work pretty good to stand up in in shallow water. RickOM:
You may want to "fish on the move" but, have you considered what to do if you do hook up? Ya can't use the oars when you have a fish on and the fins just ain't gonna do it. In general, the toon is used to reach various bars / beaches on the river where you get out and fish.
Also, don't drop an anchor in moving water.......
