Queen's Trout
For several decades, the Savoys have frequented the Upper Gypsum Valley as their exclusive place of hunting and fishing. In particular, Queen Helen of Savoy, a great lover of fishing, loved to go fishing in the river Gesso, where it is still possible today to find some examples, albeit very rare now, of the trout so loved by the Queen, spectacular in livery, with its small red dots scattered throughout its coat.
