You might be a redneck if...

This video doesn't look all that unusual to you. Actually a lot of people where i grew up used to do this on Sunday afternoons for leisure.

There would be 6 or 7 guys wading down the muddy river for several miles and pulling these big flat heads out of the water. Personally I am too much wussy.

I grew up in Oklahoma, one of the few states in the Union where hand fishing or "noodling" is legal. Google Okie Noodling.

BTW, I was born in Texas and only lived in Oklahoma because at 6, when we moved there, I was not quite ready to face the world on my own. Still not ready, truth be told.

One of my buddies wears a "dress cap" with the name of a leading manufacturer of farm machinery when he goes out. It's different from the other caps he wears in that it looks much nicer....
