    Love the DIY nature of some of these! I may even have a smaller weight sitting around house. I didn't know that only 5lbs was enough to keep me from drifting.

    I find that if it takes more than five pounds to keep me from drifting, the conditions probably aren't conducive to fly fishing from a kayak.

    I was just thinking about how to anchor my traditional sit inside kayak if I wanted to cast from it. Very interesting ideas on anchoring. BTW does anybody cast from a sit inside kayak or are you all casting from sit on top, satcom capable, motorized jobs with depth finders.

    I now cast from a sit-on-top but have also done so from a sit-inside kayak.

    I have a sit inside and a sit on top and I cast from both; each has pros and cons (no motor, nothing high tech, I bought them both cheap on craigslist).

    As I'm very new I'm compelled to ask, what are the pros and cons of casting from a sit inside kayak?

    I fish from a S.I.T.as getting in and out is just so much more convenient,as is having a towel on your lap to hold the coils of your fly line...plus it's cooler temperature wise where I live and I can hang my legs over the side if I want.I don't go out in the ocean.

    I have two systems depending on what I am doing. I carry an 8lb mushroom anchor with 50 ft of para cord for when i am driving to a lake. Works great for about every situation I can think of. If I am dead drifting a shore line, I fix the mushroom anchor straight up and down on my hip d ring so when the wind pushes it kind of bounces me along the shore line.
    I also own an anchor bag. It is a rubberized mesh bag that I carry when I bring my packraft. Weighs next to nothing, but with a rock it is a perfect solution. I carry a 30 ft section of para for it. Drop it at a 45 or off my hip. Great set up.
