Same cord different technique
I'd advise just helping the weight along on the way up and supporting it on the way down. That will be easier on the tree than just going with a thicker line. Use your hand when in reach and ...

Clever, but...
It looks clever and probably works fine, but the weight savings have to be pretty minimal since the trekking pole only replaces a shortish mid section of the fly rod. So the weight savings must be...
