In Reply to: Patty posted by Slang term my trout on February 28, 2003

: There is a regional slang phrase or term in which someone may call someone with whom he is acquainted (well acquainted?) "my trout" (or "me trout"). It is from the Atlantic maritime region, meaning Newfoundland, Maine, NovaScotia, etc.

: I should say I'm not sure I have heard this correctly, but I believe I have! Curious thing to call someone.

: Anyone know just what is meant and also how the term originated. Thanks. - Patty

I found "old trout," but that means old woman. And I looked in a regional slang book and couldn't find "my trout."
