local color

If you call for a plumber around these parts you might get the local celebrity.

The Love's job rep told Buddy about the plumbing contractor being a colorful character. Don's Plumbing arrived on site and did a fantastic plumbing job, then the owner told Buddy all about his adventures.

He goes by Don "Katt Daddy" Brewer. You see he catches catfish. By hand. Noodling. A champion noodler 'round here. He was on Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe. He was on the National Geographic show Mudcats. He has a filmography listing on IMDb.

Just a local good ol' boy, he started noodling as a child to help put food on the family's table.

The local noodlin' tournament is coming up, check out the past years' pictures. Jeff Foxworthy would love this, if you catch catfish by hand you might be a redneck :)
