CHARLESTON — “Noodling” is the sport of catching catfish with your bare hands, and folks aching to do that in West Virginia may soon get the chance.

The Senate Natural Resources Committee gave its approval on Feb. 5 to SB 416 to legalize noodling. In separate action, the panel also gave its blessing to Sunday hunting on public lands.
