rigging a drift sock needs 2 lines - good idea to make them 2 colors.
The working line ties (anchors) to the drift sock parachute and the stern of your boat (or trolley ring that you can move to the stern).
The longer deployment line ties to the back of the drift sock, collapsing the parachute when you pull, and needs to tag in your cockpit.
You have to bring in your drift sock to paddle upwind and set up a new drift.
My best rigging clips the working line on a scotty clip to the trolley ring, routing the deployment line through the ring, and lashing the deployment line to a cockpit z-cleat.
If the parachute is on a D-ring, here's a simple and small anchor knothttp://www.theensign.org/uspscompass/co ... rtwthh.htm
With a rudder, a trolley is always the best option for keeping the lines from fouling your rudder, but if a trolley is still down your list:
the quick-rig option is tie (bowline) the working line to your stern lift handle, and tie the deployment line to your side lift handle - you can still do all you need from the cockpithttp://www.theensign.org/uspscompass/co ... owline.htm
TSL grasswalker is the undefeated lure for this activity
Drifting out of Big Cut, though, I'll begin with a weighted cocahoe or Tsunami SS3 (=wildeye shad) until past the channel slope.
