I use 2 10'sections of black iron pipe, tied a 1/4" rope between them & have a old spinning reel loaded with 20lbs line that I run thru the eyelet on the back of the decoys. After I stand them up & staked out I tighten the line to make then set upright . I have about 2 dozen decoys or so to put on the line & spread around

I am planning to get two 10 ft 3/4" conduit to slide over two 4 ft 1/2" conduit. Then will tie rope from one to the other.

Was thinking on it and what do you guys think about an aluminum painters pole that extends maybe out to 16' thats the only thing i feel might be what would work........

Mike Could you explain in detail how you keep your doves upright on the rope? I tried to PM you.

I like that idea. I made a couple of fake trees with pvc and painted them in camo that I attach foam doves on. I also use a battery powered Mojo. I might try running a line between my two "trees." I love the fishing string idea...thanks.
