Tired of swimming for your anchor in rocky water? Tie the anchor rope to the bottom of the anchor and “wire tie” the rope to the top. In normal functions there is no difference to what you usually do with the anchor. When it gets stuck pull the rope hard enough to break the wire tie and the anchor “backs” out of the sticky spot. This way you spend less time swimming for anchors and more time fishing!
