Okie Noodling Tournament in Pauls Valley, Oklahoma will soon be duplicated in Texas with the passage of the Noodling Bill by the Senate, according to reports by several international news sites.

Noodling is a sport where catfish are caught using the competitors bare hands. Fishermen put their arms in catfish holes and wait for the fish to bite them.

Noodling, though popular in the South, other states still consider the sport as illegal.

Before the legalization of the bill, Noodling in Texas is a Class C misdemeanor, punishable by a $500 fine.
