After carrying heavy steel pins all over the hill to secure fox snares I was introduced to earth anchors about eight years ago.
I tried them and quickly found they worked.
They are so small they will fit in the palm of your hand but will hold the biggest of foxes in a snare.
At that time they were generally imported from America and were expensive, but as I used them, I began to develop ideas of my own
I have now developed a range of four anchors suitable for most types of ground.
