Thanks for posting this, Tendertoe! That is a great idea. I will definitely try that. I've been resisting the pole mods due to the weight of the extra pole and in order to KISS (keep it simple, Scott). I've been using the same Prussik hitch method for my tie-outs on my JRB 11x10 tarp and it's worked well.
"I fish because I love to; because I love the environs where trout are found, which are invariably beautiful... because, in a world where most men seem to spend their lives doing things they hate, my fishing is at once an endless source of delight and an act of small rebellion; because trout do not lie or cheat and cannot be bought or bribed or impressed by power, but respond only to quietude and humility and endless patience...." --Robert Traver
