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"
