INSIDE COPY

 

 

Catfish, Bream, Croppy, Bass, Perch, Bluegill, Trout.  They're all in the Ozarks, drawing fishermen-and women-from near and far.  Sometimes, they plan ahead for a big fishing trip.  Other times, they start their day as usual.  Then they get the hankerin' to haul something live out of the water.  Once it stops flopping around, they measure it.  If it's big enough, they have their portrait made with it.  If not, they throw it back in the water, where other fish are skeptical of its tale of alien abduction.  In recent years, a hard-core breed of gillbilly has emerged-the noodler.  Who needs fishing tackle when you can reach into the muddy water, grab a catfish by the mouth, and pull it out?  Sober people, that's who.
