    Good stuff. I lost a anchor before and replacing it is not a cheap task. I do see how a zip tie would work. Thanks for sharing.

    Yeah man! I had to cut off an anchor once when I was first learning to kayak fish. A buddy showed me that trick and I've stuck with it ever since! You can use the zip-tie method on pretty much ANY style anchor not just the one show in this video.

    Thanks,

    A few months ago I about lost my grapling anchor. My fishing buddy volunteered to go swimming for it. Got it back.

    I heard about the zip tie method before and didn't think I needed it. Thought twice after almost loosing my anchor. Unfortunately, I had heavy duty ties. Didn't think that would work. Needing a temporary fix, I used the McGyver in me and used a narrow strip of duct tape and wrapped it a few times in place of the tie. It worked and continues to work, even after about three months. I'm impressed!

    Maybe in a bit, I'll break down and buy a small package of small ties. But, that may be some time away. Duct tape is cheaper!!!

    up in jax they call it a "jetty anchor" b/c you loose so many on the rocks.
