    When I canoe fished I carried an anchor that had been poured in a peanut can a long time ago. About 3” across and 2 1/2” tall on a quarter inch braided line. I’ve dropped it into some grabby stuff and always gotten it back. An anchor with a conical design would also work. I don’t have a weight on it but it’s not super heavy and always held. I did want a trolley though, that idea has merit.

    There is another way!
    I often fish standing timber so developed a "tether line" to hold me in place. I use a nylon cord (1/8 - 3/16 thk. works well) with a series of floats similar to those used on sky lines, to float the whole thing. --- On the one end, I attached a "limb gripper" with a over sized snap swivel (can use a carabiner) with one "oversized float right there near the end. (this prevents loss if it should snap a limb off and fall in water!). Play out the line to adjust your position down wend and fish nearby trees. Using the sculling paddle, I can move the boat to several trees before reattaching the line elsewhere! I use the same process to hold along a shoreline, attaching to the outer limbs of a overhanging tree! The whole rig nests nicely into a 2-gal bucket, allowing some 25-30 feet in line and floats. ----- If you don't over do the attachment process, you can simply pull it free when at the end of line, then reattach elsewhere to float the next section downwind! If fishing was "hot" on a section, paddle back out and upwind, to float a second time!

    I have the paddle from Academy and I prefer my ping pong paddle, it is lighter and smaller and gets the job done. I also use a old jumper cable end and a piece of small rope that I can clamp on a limb and tie to the kayak. I use the same set up on my boat.

    When I canoe fished I carried a small lead anchor about 6 or8 pounds, poured in an old peanut can maybe 3Ē across and about that tall. Keeping it on the upwind or up current end helped me a lot and wasnít huge or grabby like most store bought anchors. Iíve thought about a wood, one time mold that would resemble a tall pyramid that would slip in the direction of pull if it got into brush. Wouldnít hold in strong wind or current but I seldom had that issue. Food for thought.
