The rising flood waters have proved to be a challenge for a lot of people but a rare opportunity for others. Peter Robinson is known as “The Fish Guy” after he noodled a 50-pound catfish and carried it through downtown Davenport.
He’s now an internet sensation.
You’ll even find several memes of him floating around.
“Before all this, I was literally a nobody, I was homeless and I still unfortunately am,” Robinson said. “And, afterward I was, ya know, getting all these job offers, gigs to show up to, different celebrity… other appearances.”
Peterson says the support he’s received has been amazing.
He did have to pay a fine for picking up that big fish with his hands.
Noodling is illegal in Iowa.
