Fishing is a wonderful way to build relationships, enjoy nature, and experience personal renewal. And during the trip, you might even catch a few fish!
According to the book of Genesis, the Lord said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness," and in the very next phrase, He added, "and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea" (Genesis 1:26). So I suppose it's obvious that we were made to fish!
Fishing is more than something to do on the weekend - fishing is a frame of mind. It builds relationships, encourages an appreciation for nature, and brings personal renewal. Drawing on personal experience, stories from Church leaders, and the scriptures, John Bytheway shares observations of a "reel man" with a generous dose of humor.
This beautiful gift book features dozens of full-color photographs and shares fishing experiences from latter-day prophets such as Wilford Woodruff, George Albert Smith, Gordon B. Hinckley, and Thomas S. Monson. In addition, you’ll find insightful and humorous quotations, and even scriptures about fish and fishermen.
If you can't get out to the lake today, sit back relax, and read Fishing. You'll be hooked.
This book is filled with the perfect collection of quotes and insights about the great American pasttime of fishing. Not only does John Bytheway tell it how it is to be a fisherman, but he also includes wonderful words on Jesus Christ, the fisher of men. In addition, this book is filled with the most beautiful color pictures of rivers, streams and fish to really 'lure' you into its pages! I would recommend this book to anybody who has ever enjoyed the peace and serenity of a river or lake and the excitement of casting a line and baiting that hook can offer!
