The Annual Okie Noodling Tournament, Oklahoma
Now in its 13th year, this competition  takes place every June on the catfish-rich Washita River in the town of Pauls Valley, in central Oklahoma. Legends such as Lee McFarlin (the Dale Earnhardt of noodling) are fixtures at the event. The whole tournament is one big party, from the crowning of the noodling queen to the catfish cookoff. There’s nowhere better to find an expert to give you tips.
