For Oklahoma fishermen, there's nothing quite like the thrill of catching a 60-pound catfish with their bare hands. For hundreds of years, they've been diving into creeks, rivers and lakes, in search of bank-dwelling catfish. These murky waters are home to the wild world of noodling. This program captures the excitement of a sport that has hooked three Oklahoma families for generations. The award-winning documentary chronicles the fishing tradition from its roots as a Native American hunting practice to its present-day status as a sport with its own distinctive sub-culture. It includes a colorful cast of characters who impart their philosophies, techniques, horror stories and passion for the sport.
