2. Folding 5lb anchor + 4' 1/4 chain for small lakes and calm weather.

3. Recently purchased Mushroom Anchor as an alternative to a folding anchor for weed beads.

4. Drift sock
This is all you need for a SIB up to about 4 metres

What for I need almost useless thing in my SIB? In some lakes it will not hold, in some it will snag every time and you'll have to cut rope or dive for it, in some it would harvest 10+ lb of weed. Sorry, not for me but thanks for suggestion.
