Craziest Fishing Tale review by Shefishes2, Debbie Hanson

Debbie Hanson, fishing advocate of

“With dreams of big fish and fame during tough times, Hatcher Hampton sets off on a bayou adventure that comes to a conclusion much differently than he anticipates. Life lessons are learned, family bonds are reinforced, and the power to persist through all of the “thwacks” is realized. From the gruff Grandpa Grump to the scraggly bearded Lazarre, Alipio’s characters come to life with entertaining quirks and Southern dialogue throughout this coming-of-age fishing tale. Whether you’re 8 or 80, you’ll find ‘The Craziest Fishing Tale on the Bayou’ to be a truly enjoyable and easy read.”
