While GordMay uses "Anchor Spring Line" to describe a snubber or bridle, I can't think of anyone else who does or didn't use the term without some reference to GordMay's writing. I believe Cam is correct that "spring lines" are generally taken to refer to lines connecting a boat to a pier or other fixed shore structure, not an anchor.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
