Anchor Bridle and connecting to a nylon rope rode

I like to anchor using a basic anchor bridle. Current using a combination of chain and nylon rope rode. How would I attach the rope rode to the anchor bridle?

Are you really using a bridle, or a snubber? A rolling hitch would work - probably require 2 - one with a hook and one to tie.

Some people use a bridle on a mono, but most don't. Still, all you need is a rolling hitch to tie one line onto another, and I throw on a couple of extra half hitches just to make sure. Works for me up to hurricane force. You can also tie onto the chain the same way.

You will likely receive a lot of advice. One method is to use prusik loops. The loop has to be the correct diameter and relatively soft. Wrap the loop through itself twice. tension will cinch the knot onto the rode so that it will not slip.

I might ask, if you are running chain with nylon primary, why don't you just transfer the rode to a cleat? Our primary is 7/16 G4 chain with secondary chain + nylon rode. Chain is on a snubber bridle with chain grab hook and the secondary goes to the bollard. The prusik with a tag line to a winch can hold the rode while you fiddle with it. I hate to put myself in a position where the rode (or any line) can get away from me and use my palms for fish chum.
