I believe “noodlin” catfish was invented in Mississippi. It was reported in the journal kept by a member of Hernando DeSoto’s expedition that the Chickasaw indians would tie there breechcloth around their forearm get in the river and feel around the bank and logs and that a catfish would swallow their forearm and clamp his teeth on the breechcloth and they would pull him out.
We have scary big catfish in the backwaters here and it’s definitely something *I* wouldn’t do.
Them thangs gots teef!
He’s obviously not metrosexual, at least.
Mud on their Chinos and under their nails would drive them mad.
