The Name - The Old Trouts
On the Palmer Ranch, where the Old Trouts first gathered, there's a swimming hole much beloved by the people of the area. In that swimming hole, it is said, there lives an ancient fish, who will answer any question you ask it, if you can swim deep enough to find it. Our company is named after that noble creature, even though, truth be told, we never did manage to find it. "Old Trout" is also a term of endearment in Newfoundland, and that gave the name an endearing ring. Of course, when we named ourselves thusly we were not yet old, but every day we become more and more like our moniker.
