Greetings fellow bird hunters and fly fishers. It’s been a long time coming, but I am excited to annouce that my first book, Heaven on Earth: Stories of Fly Fishing, Fun & Faith is almost here. Below is a brief summary of the book:
The Lord has a special place in his heart for fishermen. For lawyers, not so much. When a guy who deals daily with the collision of these conflicting worlds has the temerity to author a book, you wonder whether anything coherent can result. This singular miracle, however, is now in print. In Heaven on Earth: Stories of Fly Fishing, Fun & Faith, Andrew Wayment, a diehard fisherman and attorney, negotiated his personal contradiction with such style and grace as to transport you to a place of joy and peace. This book is a collection of stories from the author’s life with the pastime of fly fishing as the primary subject matter. However, in a nation where it is quickly becoming taboo to even mention God or things of a spiritual nature, the author bucks this trend and uses fish and fishing as a vehicle to share deeper spiritual principles. Hopefully, in reading this book of fishing stories you, too, will find a little Heaven on Earth.
Of Heaven on Earth, Hartt Wixom, the author of Improve the World: Go Fishing! and Fishing: The Extra Edge wrote:
Andrew Marshall Wayment has done a phenomenal job 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.
I am excited to share this work with the world. I am not sure of all the details yet, but we will most likely be creating a website where you can order the book. I will post a link as soon as it’s ready. If any of you are interested in a signed copy, please shoot me an email and I’ll email you with the details as soon as I know.
Thanks for your support!
