How to retrieve a halyard from masthead???

Never mind about how it happened....but aside from a boson''s chair or dropping the mast, does anyone know any tricks on how to get a wire halyard from the masthead? It''s a 25 O''day tall rig (~31ft). I was thinking about sliding a 20ft. length of 1" PVC over the other end of the wire halyard and then attaching a very stiff steel wire to the end of the halyard and try to push the wire thru the pipe allowing the other end of the halyard to begin coming down. Surely some of you have had this happen and there are some inovative methods of accomplishing this. Thanks for any ideas.....Gary
