We have investigated the finite-size effects of anisotropic continuum percolation in two dimensions. The elements that percolate are widthless sticks. We have developed a simple theory to explain the dependence of longitudinal and transverse critical lengths on anisotropy and the finite number of sticks in the sample. By comparing the theory to simulations, we find good agreement.
