Spokane River Benefit Next Week

Would you like drift boat access on the Upper Spokane?

The 2015 Spokane River Benefit and International Fly Film Festival is coming up fast. Next Wednesday, the 25th, marks our 2nd annual event which will benefit drift boat access on the upper Spokane River at the Island's Trailhead.

This project has been in the works since 2010 thanks to Andy Dunau from the Spokane River Forum who has been able to secure most of the funds needed for the $108,000 take-out / bank restoration through grants and private organizations. Our film festival and benefit will hopefully raise the final $6000 to complete the slide system and stream side restoration. Once complete, this take out will give anglers a 8 mile stretch on the upper Spokane from Harvard to the slide at the Islands.

We have tons of great prizes from manufacturers like Winston Rods, Lamson Reels, Patagonia, Simms, Rising, Fishpond, etc. Check out the items that will be raffled or auctioned off at the benefit below, all proceeds going straight to the Island's Trailhead boat slide.

Haven't got your ticket yet? Purchase tickets online on the IF4 Website or swing by the Silver Bow Fly Shop.

Hope to see you at the show!
