Just wondering - why do we say "anchoring up" when it's really anchoring down? Now "dropping the hook" is understandable but to "anchor up" -- hummmmmmmmmmm.[grin]

We do that a lot in Virgina when fishing for Spades at the Chesapeake Light Tower off of Virginia Beach. First we "drop the hook" then we "anchor up" so we can "drop the hook" again cause we missed a few times and it just doesn't catch.

Didn't the saying "anchoring up" come from the practice of anchoring upstream?
