Hi Brockster
In my opinion some of that information may be a bit dated but having said that nearly all the advice is still valid, i am not aware of any signals that should be displayed when at anchor, but most of the club boats have long vhf airials usually fixed to a gantry with a flag of some discription flying on the top which would give some visual warning when anchored, this could be of use when fishing at anchor when there is a ground swell running.

There must be plenty of boat safety links out there - the ones below contain good advice http://www.bristolchannelangling.co.uk/index.htm - http://www.boat-angling.co.uk/Hints_and_Tips/boat_equipment.htm - but there are many more.

But, from previous experience fishing in deep water when wreck fishing etc. especially near any shipping lanes different rules may apply - see http://www.cvs1.co.uk/wyenavigation/d.html.

Good advice to anglers in smaller boats fishing anywhere near these areas is to have a Radar Reflector as high as possible.

Hope with helps.

Been doing a little more research for you and I think I have found what you are looking for. Anchor lights and signals may apply in certain areas - where, I do not know, but the below refers to Plymouth area so assume similar rules/by-laws apply in areas of heavy shipping movement. The advice on our small boats was taken from the internat so it is useful information to be aware of but will not apply in some areas.

https://www.hmso.gov.uk/si/si1999/99202902.htm

Narrow channels
2. For the purposes of the Collision Regulations and Rule 13 of this Schedule all the navigable waters of the Dockyard Port north of 5020'.00 North, that is to say the line passing through Plymouth Breakwater in an east-west direction, shall be deemed to be a 'narrow channel'.

Anchor and other lights and signals (exemptions) etc
3. - (1) Unmanned vessels and vessels with only shipkeepers on board, where secured to moorings out of the fairway, may be exempted by the Queen's Harbour Master from the necessity of carrying anchor lights.

(2) Vessels carrying cargoes of hazardous, dangerous or noxious substances as defined in Regulation 8 of the 1987 Regulations when anchored, moored, or secured alongside within the Dockyard Port shall, in addition to the lights and shapes prescribed in Rule 30 of the Collision Regulations, display the following lights or signals:
(a) between sunset and sunrise, a red all round light visible for 2 nautical miles situated above any other light being displayed by the vessel;

(b) between sunrise and sunset, a red swallow-tailed flag (International Flag Bravo) at the masthead which shall also be displayed when the vessel is underway.
(3) Submarines secured to buoys within the Dockyard Port shall, without prejudice to any requirement prescribed by Rule 30 of the Collision Regulations, display between sunset and sunrise an all round amber light, flashing at a frequency of between 90 and 105 flashes per minute.

One addition to the markes etc. on anchor ropes etc.

Click on the picture I took last night (below) and you should see the orange (what look like )markers on the morring ropes of the Svanen out of Rhos
