Cartwheel

In the early 1990s friends and I began trout fishing on the Clinch River and, back then, we always chose a time when Norris Dam was not generating so we could fish each pool between Peach Orchard and the Highway 61 Bridge in Clinton. Then we would drag the Jon boat across the rocks to the next downstream pool and fish it. I spotted this wheel when we were fishing the pool under the Massengill Bridge. It was lodged at the base of the center pier. I spent at least fifteen minutes with the largest hook in the tackle box snagging it and bringing it to the surface.

It measures 22 3/8 inches in diameter
