Kedge anchor or stock/nonburying anchor is the best example of the large, heavy, Cross-shaped fisherman?s anchor/yachtsman?s anchor, which holds the boat with its weight and by snagging rocks.

Fisherman anchor is a kin of kedge anchor which is a traditionally shaped anchor having flukes perpendicular to the stock of the anchor and connected by a shank. These are less common than modern anchors such as the plow and lightweight anchors.
