TKFS Notes; The SeaLect Danforth 5lb Anchor is our “go to” for strong currents but can be tricky to pull up from our limited leverage on a kayak. The zip tie trick can help. Just tie the anchor off at the bottom. Run the line up to the top (the normal tie off) and use a zip tie instead of a knot. This zip tie will break under your strength and allow you to reverse the anchor from the directing it dug itself into the bottom.
