picking up a mooring single handed

I have a 37 morgan. Want to learn to single handle the boat. the one thing i am having trouble arranging is the fact i am on a mooring and have an idea how to leave but picking up the mooring when i return seems tough. Anybody have experience and tips? There is a catch. my mooring is on a river and there is almost alwasy a current up or down the river and the mooring field is not overly crouded but fairly close. It is not as simple as bring the bow to the mooring and hit neutral and walk to the bow and pick it up. It has to be done from the cockpit. Any ideas are welcome.
