noodlin' for catfish, parts 1 & 2

Bon Appétit's Brad Leone partnered up with loud, shouty Canadian cook Matty Matheson to go noodling for catfish in the muddy crickwaters of Oklahoma. Brad is the host of Bon Appétit's "It's Alive" series, in which Brad travels to different parts of the world and learns how the locals catch and/or kill and/or grow their food, from the ground (or the water) to the table. Part 1 of the catfish adventure features the actual noodling—an intimate and vaguely scary method of fishing that is best learned through experience than through explanation. Part 2 is when the chefs get into chef mode and cook up the huge fish they've caught.

Part 1, in which Matty screams like a little girl:

Part 2, which features a good bit of blood:
