2007 Okie Noodling Tournament June 30

A Good Day on the Lake
Originally uploaded by FreeWine
A group of noodlers will gather at Pauls Valley June 30 for the Eighth Annual Okie Noodling Tournament, Festival and Fish Fry.

Noodling is the sport of fishing by hand rather than rod and reel, and those who are willing to try it will have their chance to compete for over $5,000 in cash and prizes.

The annual Okie Noodling Tournament held in Pauls Valley has become quite a tradition for many Oklahomans. In fact, last year the event drew about 120 participants and 3,200 spectators to the south-central Oklahoma town. Once again, Bob's Pig Shop will host the event, which starts at 5 p.m. The event will feature a fish fry, live music, a noodling queen pageant and plenty of monstrous catfish.
