EARLY REVIEWS:

“Alipio’s story truly IS the ‘Craziest Fishing Tale on the Bayou’ I’ve ever heard. It has embedded how fishing can impact family relationships, the process of growing up, goal setting and the value of persistence and hard work in the face of failure … if you want to revisit your early observations of fishing or just plain entertainment, cast your lure at this one!”
— Don Dubuc, WWL Outdoors Radio & TV Host, New Orleans, LA

“With a knack for humor and heart, Alipio likes to blur the lines between the scary and the silly.”
–– Pelican Publishing Co.

ABOUT “THE CRAZIEST FISHING TALE ON THE BAYOU”:

Eleven-year-old Hatcher Hampton is competing in his first fishing rodeo with hopes to win $500 and bragging rights over his older brother forever. But getting stuck in a horse-fly-infested swamp with Grampa Grump and no extra underwear isn’t what he has in mind. In the end, Hatcher must face a two-footed bayou beast and a one-armed pesky neighbor to win the greatest award of all. “Here fishy, fishy, fishy!”
