Kayak tournament angler and Hooked on Wild Waters host Drew Gregory discusses the need for fishing kayak boat control in order to fish effectively in rivers. He highlights his 2 go-to tools to achieve anchoring and controlled drift, and how and when to use each.

The Power-Pole Micro Anchor provides immediate and on-the-spot anchoring while a drag chain allows for slowing your drift speed. Drew also explains how he uses a drag chain in conjunction with a shallow water anchor. Mastering the use of one or both of these tools allows you to thoroughly fish productive spots like current seams and eddies instead of quickly passing by.
