  8lb anchor?
  Posted by: old_user on Jun-05-11 7:13 PM (EST)
 

You mentioned facing downstream,so you must be on a creek or river?I use a 1.5lb.folding grapnel for rocky or grassy bottoms or a 2.5lb. Danforth for sandy or muddy bottoms.I anchor off of the stern using half-hitches until I reach my "spot",and then put a stick into the next hitch loop to prevent current from pulling out the rest.Works alright for me.That way,you don't have to worry about the fish getting tangled in the anchor line.I hope this helps;good fishing!!
