How to retrieve a halyard from masthead???

Got that sucker down!!! I think it was Doug who had the winning idea. I attached a fish tape (stiff wire used for pulling elec wire thru conduit) with a hook bent in it. Taped the hook to the tail of my jib halyard because it runs right alongside the main halyard (oday 25). Pulled the hook up alongside the shackle and snared it. The fish tape wire is stiff enough to twist the hook from the deck to help hook the shackle. Thanks to all for the help....Gary
