Priest Lake fisherman finds wakeboarder’s missing finger inside large lake trout

S-R reporter Scott Maben has a rather amazing story today: A fisherman on Priest Lake hauled in a large lake trout on Sept. 11, and when he began cleaning it, he found what looked like a human finger. It's since been positively identified - it's one of four digits a Colbert, Wash. software developer lost in a wakeboarding accident on the lake back in June, when a looped line sheared off part of two fingers and all of two others. A sheriff's detective reported that the finger was in remarkably good condition; you can read Maben's full story here at spokesman.com.
