“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.
“Author Gary Alipio’s funny fish tale is a great choice for young and old. As a wise old fisherman (a la Grampa Grump) once said, “that’s why they call it ‘fishing,’ not ‘catching.'” –– New Orleans Magazine
ABOUT “THE CRAZIEST FISHING TALE ON THE BAYOU”:
Hatcher Hampton is turning twelve. Per family tradition, he’ll be entering his first fishing rodeo, hoping to prove he’s better than his older brother. First prize wins $500 –– money that could save his family from being evicted from their home –– and the winner gets his picture in the front page of the paper! But getting stuck in a horsefly-infested swamp with Grampa Grump and no extra underwear isn’t what he had in mind.
