Place each trout on a piece of aluminium foil. Season to taste with salt and pepper, then stuff each cavity with 1/4 of the butter, green pepper and garlic if using.
Roll the trout tightly in the foil, forming parcels. Use some additional foil to secure each parcel of fish to a metal toasting rod for use as a handle when removing fish from the fire.
Cover the fish parcels in the red hot, smouldering coals of your campfire and cook until the fish is done, 7 to 10 minutes, depending on the heat of the fire.
