FISHING -- A benefit auction and film showing Tuesday night in Spokane netted $6,500 for the Wild Steelhead Coalition, says Josh Mills, organizer and fly fishing blogger.

About 260 people, up from 149 in last year's debut event, paid $5 each to get into the event at the Lincoln Center, where they could have a drink, bid on prizes ranging from flies to guided steelhead trips and watch the fine and funny fly fishing video, Low and Clear.

Mills, who recruited his entire family to help put on the event, said this effort was a payback for his indelible memory of catching his first wild steelhead.
