    Just watched a TV show called Hillbilly Hand Fishing.
    They stick their hand into muddy underwater holes to catch catfish.
    Seems like it would be a good survival skill to learn...
    However...I'D RATHER GO HUNGRY!

    Yes the proper term for this Noodling. I learned about this many years ago when I was living in Oklahoma. I never had the opportunity to try it but it looks like fun.
