I usually collect submerged wood too. Sure, it may harbor some nasties, like
hydra, but also some neat and beneficial stuff as well. The other way I
found useful is to tie with cotton thread ( versus synthetic thread) of a
green or brown to a rock or other under gravel heavy object. The thread
usually decomposes by the time the wood is sunk ( which can take several
years on occasion). I don't like using non-biodegradeable thread because it
can get caught in filters if forgotten and can be hard to remove form the
wood later on.
