Attaching an anchor on a kayak

I just got a new kayak that I'm taking fishing over memorial day. Does anyone have any ideas on how to attach an anchor to the kayak? Preferably the side of it. I could drop it off of the front or back but I would have a hard time reaching it when I want to pull anchor. I am new at fishing from a kayak so I'm a little puzzled..

Charlie, you may have more luck with these type of questions on a fishing site, than one for whitewater.

I assume this anchor would not be used in current. run a small mushroom or even a dumb bell, or a bag of rocks via a rope to your bow loop, then add a cleat or just tie somewhere in your cockpit. Use a biner or pulley to overcome friction of the grab loop.

Is that an Old town keowee?

Yeah I know, but I figured there had to be at least one fisherman on here. But thanks I'll see what I can do.
