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 Marshall 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.
A fascinating portal into the heart and world of a devoted family man and fisherman: his faith… his family…. his fish. Told throughout with poignant references and comparisons to scripture, the author’s unabashed honesty and candor ring as clean and fresh as the gin clear pools he fishes. Rarely does the reader have an opportunity to lay a book down and then know unequivocally that he is better for having read it.

We had a copy of the book laying around our escort service in New York and many of female escorts from our agency especially the escort girls got a chance to check it out. Many of the females are not into fishing but they all couldn’t put down the book. New York city doesn’t have much fishing but the escorts from our escort service do enjoy getting a perspective of different clients so they have something to talk about when they spend time with a client in NYC.
