Along Oklahoma's many rivers, a group of daring men practices a tradition dating back to early pioneer days: catching giant catfish with nothing more than their bare hands. A skill taught to colonial settlers by Native Americans, hand catching catfish was first documented in 1775 and remain a vital rural tradition. During the Great Depression, it was an important way to feed families at low cost. Today, catfish "noodling" is a way to supplement incomes during the regulated catfish season.
