Remote river anchors

I once fished with a guy in Oklahoma that had this neat anchor system rigged up on a bass boat that he had customized for Striper fly fishing in rivers. Anchor was dropped off the bow. Remote operated by two toggle switches mounted on the forward bulkhead of the bow casting deck. One for letting out anchor rope. The other for winding in anchor rope. He fished barefooted and operated them with his toes. With that and a bow mounted trolling motor, he could position the boat pretty much anywhere he wanted. Trolling motor was just the plain jane type. Without the fancy foot operated controls. This kept the casting deck clean for running line. (He used a shooting head system) It all worked very well for him.
