About this recording





In this short recording, Murray Banks recalls how as a youngster he and a friend would go scaffing for herring at Wick harbour, then earn some pocket money by selling the fish round the doors. One customer even placed a regular order.

Murray also talks about going fishing for peltags and mackerel.

You can listen to Murray sharing some of his other childhood memories in this earlier Wick Voices recording:
