I needed this quite often and thus changed my incremental search to
keep the rest of the line and just insert the freshly found line:

# History search with globs.
# 21sep2011  +chris+
# 05jun2012  +chris+  and keeping the rest of the line
autoload -Uz narrow-to-region
_history-incremental-preserving-pattern-search-backward() {
  local state
  MARK=CURSOR  # magick, else multiple ^R don't work
  narrow-to-region -p "$LBUFFER${BUFFER:+>>}" -P "${BUFFER:+<<}$RBUFFER" -S state
  zle end-of-history
  zle history-incremental-pattern-search-backward
  narrow-to-region -R state
zle -N _history-incremental-preserving-pattern-search-backward
bindkey "^R" _history-incremental-preserving-pattern-search-backward
bindkey -M isearch "^R" history-incremental-pattern-search-backward
bindkey "^S" history-incremental-pattern-search-forward
