Heaven On Earth: Stories of Fly Fishing, Fun & Faith by Andrew M. Wayment

“Andrew Marshall Wayment has done a phenomenal job of combining fishing, fun, family, faith, and, I would add, philosophy to his Heaven on Earth book. In the process, he has provided many insightful ways and means of enjoying angling to its zenith. In addition, the fly fisherman will gain a hatful of fishing tips as he/she wades the Madison River and other favorite American fishing holes.”

—Hartt Wixom, the author of Fishing: The Extra Edge and Improve the World: Go Fishing!

From the high alpine lakes of Idaho and the mighty Madison River of Montana to lesser known creeks and ponds throughout the west, come join the author, Andrew Marshall Wayment, on a journey, which takes you from the halls of the author’s law school to the cathedrals of the great outdoors. Along the way, you will read some good tips on fly fishing, but more importantly, you will learn some deeper spiritual truths that the author found along the way. Heaven on Earth is a compilation of true stories from the author’s life with fly fishing as the theme, but used as a vehicle to share a greater message of faith, hope, joy, peace, and our Heavenly Father’s love.

Andrew has written a book that not only inspires one to go fly fishing, but to understand the lessons learned through a life lived with God. Every one who loves the outdoors and their God will understand how the two intertwine to live a complete fulfilling life and how it all fits together. An immensely enjoyable read.

Andy Wayment is a lawyer in Idaho, but after reading his book, along with following his blog at it's obvious that the outdoors, including flyfishing and upland bird hunting, are at the center of his passions. Of course, he and his wife have six children, so family is also important and will keep his nose to the law firm's grindstone for years to come. Still, the outdoors, and reading and writing about the outdoors, is an integral part of life for the author, and that integration of family, religious faith, profession, and the outdoors is totally seamless, and that integration is the true theme to his book. He relates that now, as a practicing attorney, he normally wears a suit and tie at work, though he notes that if you look closely, you'll see the tie probably has pheasants, and his belt buckle has a trout on it. He explains, "As an attorney, I sometimes feel like I am out of my element, like a fish out of water, or like an immigrant. I wear these emblems so that I never forget who I am, where I come from, how I got this far, and most importantly, where I can turn for peace. You can take me out of the wild, but you cannot take the spirit of nature or its creator out of me. It is an integral part of me." Andy leaves the reader with the feeling that he is a man at peace with who he is and with his relationship with a loving creator. In short, his is the story of a lucky man, a person you'd probably like to know. Paul F. Vang, outdoor writer, Butte, Montana, author of "Sweeter Than Candy - a Hunter's Journal"
