Hello lads.
I found this little treasure at a local sale and never really took the time to investigate. Anyone know the 5 W's on this club?
Thanks and look forward to hearing from those in the know.

Having trouble posting a picture(file size) . Its a set of four coasters (EarthenArt) with "St Paul's Salmon Fishing club" and Quebec Canada. Six flies are pictured in the middle. Nice set, one of my coolest finds.
Any info is appreciated.

Isn't the St Pauls river on the Quebec North Shore? Past Natashquan? I have heard one one fellow mentioning it once about ten years ago, he was the owner of a Flyshop in Dartmouth, NS named the Green Highlander. Hmmmm offf to check a map now that you've got my curosity up.

The gentleman who had mentioned the St Paul river to me ran a fly shop in Dartmouth and I don't believe that it is open any more. He was kind of a biker flyfishing guy with a beard and leathers on but with a very extreme dedication to fly fishing, I don't recall his name. But the way I understood it the location was very remote. OK upon checking the fringes of a Nfld and Labrador map I see that the St Paul river is the last one (along the Quebec North Shore) before the border with Labrador. The closest town looks to be Blanc Sablon where the ferry lands fron Nfld. and I don't see any roads in there although I am going off an old map. Probably logging roads in to it by now. While we're on the topic are all Salmon rivers in Quebec pay per day? Or are some of the more remote ones not adminsitered by a ZEC?
