topic for the first Drawergeeks of 2008... Rednecks. Being in the Midwest... the topic was far too vast for an actual depiction, so I chose a subculture. A past time if you will. That "Hey fella's watch this" sport of all sports... Noodling. For those who have not been exposed to such a grand display of artistry... a person, "the Noodler" goes into a river, lake, channel, into the water and sticks their hand in a hole in order to pull out a catfish. Also hopefully avoiding any alligator snapping turtles that may have decided to make their homes in an abandon catfish den by default. Ah, the fun of summer.

Weird, I'd never heard of Noodling. Sounds like, um, a very challenging sport!

Great cartoon, per usual! :-) You are so versatile in your drawing styles.

Thanks Marccinha, Lacey, and Breadwig, I was out on assignment for a few days. Now I'm back wrumpled, stinky and grumpy... but fired up to get all caught up on the stuff I left hanging. It is 10 degrees here and snow.
