You mean a chunk of iron dangling below my boat won't keep me from floating away? I had never thought much about it but I can believe some people don't realize it has to come in contact with the bottom of the stream or lake. The speed of the flow makes a lot of difference in what will hold and what will not. I used a 10# vinyl covered weight off a barbell on my Fishcat float tube in the Hooch. There were places where that would not hold me in the stream. The total force of a stream is really easy to underestimate, as I found out when it flipped my tube.
