Harold Ramsey and other supporters of hand fishing (a.k.a. noodling) spoke before the Missouri Senate Agriculture committee yesterday, according to the Post-Dispatch.

Ramsey, his fisherman friend Gary Webb and other members of Noodlers Anonymous were featured in a 2007 RFT cover story about the unusual back-country sport of noodling.

Missouri legislators are once again considering a bill that would legalize the activity in the state.
