Where is trout territory?

Trout Territory is vast highland lakes, remote highland streams, choice fly fishing only lagoons, lazy lowland rivers, swollen backwaters, freestone rivers, intimate streams and tributaries, where the water is pristine and clear, and the unspoiled environment ranges from gentle to rugged, where we find dense colonies of red spinner, mayflies, beetles and hoppers, where the trout leap for dragonflies or show their tails as they rummage in the shallows, where we see swirls, bulges and ripples, hear slurps, chomps and splashes, where there are waters home to trophy trout, or many trout, all are peaceful, all are exciting, and all can surprise you!
