Simple - just have a length of rope attached at all times to your winching/towing eye in the bow. Make the rope shorter than the boat so it can't get caught in the prop.
When you anchor just tie the anchor line to the bow rope. Make a loop in the anchor rope say 10' from the end and tie the bow line to that loop. That way you will still have some anchor rope left in the boat and you can pull the rope in without leaning over the bow.
it is easier to do than say!!!
