AN EMERGENCY ANCHOR
By C. H. BALDWIK
Here is a kink that may save the day for some lone fisherman. Last year I rented a cottage and boat at a small inland lake in northern Illinois, and when ready to use the boat I found it had no anchor, and not a stone in sight or any weight of sufficient size. I discovered an old pair of overalls hanging on the garage. I cut off about two feet of one leg, tied one end securely and filled it with gravel. Tied the other end, tied anchor rope around the center and had an anchor that held for keeps.
