do you have a video of it in action? I am confused on how I attach the anchor rope to the cleat when I have it in the water.

fiyaker--- 2 questions from a kayak fishing newbie. I already have the U hardware on the bow of my yak-- it came that way. 1. the video shows your trolley running from center to bow. do you find it's better to anchor from the bow, as opposed to the stern? 2, what's the purpose of the extra line that you have hanging on the fat part of the stainless carabiner? thanks.

Yep... Can make a hairy situation. :-0 This way the clip is only mounted to the side handle so that you don't have to run line the entire legnth of the kayak. Like you said... NEVER mount an anchor in current from the center point of the kayak. This way you can mount separate trolleys from the center to the stern, and center to the bow.

very clever idea. for those of you that dont know how it works, the anchor line goes through the silver clip so when you anchor, you can position your kayak in the water and easy acess to the anchor line

do you use well nuts or through bolt the small clip in the rear of the boat??

you run the anchor line through the silver clip, then send it either to the bow or stren, depending on which way you want the kayak to turn with the wind or current.

The cleat is to tie off the line. Simply run the anchor line through the trollie, so you can unclip it quickly if needed.

Keep asking... If I can better describe something, it always helps. A major issue is anchoring perpendicular to current. You may take on water, or even tip. Run your anchor line through the piece on the trolley line, then run it to the end of the kayak. It will make sure the yak it anchored directly with the flow of the current. The trolley can be run to the bow or stern, or both. It helps tremendously.
