I use a carbide tipped, telescopically adjustable, William Joseph wading staff with a caribiner and a four foot length of bungee cord attached to my wading belt. It floats so it just trails behind me when I'm casting upstream or across stream. One thing about these telescopic adjustable staffs that I have learned is to take them apart and apply silicone grease to the adjustable joint. That way the aluminum joint doesn't corrode when drying out and become frozen. Best investment I've made for fishing on the snot rocks in the park besides my felts.
