I second the Sanza Clip idea.  The recording quality is remarkably
good, considering what it is.  I've found you can still get a fair
amount of handling noise with it attached to a stick, but if you keep
a steady grip on it, it works very well this way.  Another approach
for interviews is to use the integrated clip and attach it to the brim
of a hat -- then you just stand close to the interviewee, and talk
normally.  There's no handling noise this way, and far less chance of
any breathing noises on the mic.

One other advantage of the Sanza Clip: it's quite cheap, compared to
other solutions you might find out there.
