Storyline

For centuries, a unique breed of fishermen has been catching monster catfish with their bare hands in the rivers and lakes of Oklahoma. Today, the tradition of "noodling" still has Okie anglers hooked. This documentary by Bradley Beesley features interviews with hardcore handfishing veterans as well as footage of real noodlers in action. Set against an original musical score by rock band The Flaming Lips, Okie Noodling offers an anecdotal look at a most unusual piece of Midwest American culture. Written by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment

Damnedest thing I ever saw!
6 March 2004 | by (San Jose, CA) – See all my reviews

I stumbled into this little gem one late night on a cable educational channel, of all places. I watched as the scenes unfolded, and couldn't believe what I was seeing! To watch these men pull MONSTER catfish out of murky holes with their bare hands, fish so large it took 3 men to get them into the boat, it was an amazing spectacle. I told my father-in-law about this movie, and he was sure I had made it all up. I was happy to find this posting to prove my story, and I intend to purchase the movie for his next Christmas gift! Bottom line: This movie is too weird and fantastic to be missed by anybody who likes the offbeat and outdoor sports.
