Any advise on the fitting and operating of the anchor ?
Geez finally found it.... I had some notes stored somewhere, hope it helps bru.
You take the lanyard which is tied off the front handle, off the paddle and attach a 2 litre coke bottle via the slip knott. Secure your paddle. Keep the coke bottle on your lap at this time.
Paddle over the reef you intend fishing against the current(this is where a fish finder really helps). You need to clear it by about 20-30 metres if the water depth is 18-24 metres.
Drop the anchor over the side all the way down and let the current pull you back a bit. Tie the anchor rope off onto the lanyard using a bowline with the loop small enough so as not to slip over the coke bottle. This knot is easy to get loose.
Toss the coke bottle and put the xtra rope in your hatch or wherever.
The coke bottle takes all the jerks, and accomadates the swells.
