FLY FISHING -- The Parkinson's Resource Center of Spokane has announced the winner of its drawing for an ellegant bamboo fly rod that fits into a handcrafted walking-stick case with leather work. See the item here.
A ticket purchased by Katherine Kelley of Spokane Valley was drawn to win the handsome rod and case hand-maded by Sweetgrass Rods of Twin Bridges, Montana. Kelley's husband, Tom, has Parkinson's and was at the drawing conducted during the Tremble Clefs performance at the Arc in downtown Spokane this morning.
A total of 182 tickets were sold to folks in 15 states plus Canada, said Walt Jakubowski, who promoted the raffle to fly fishing events in the region.
