“It’s just traditional and it’s been done forever and it brings you luck,” he said late this winter, a few weeks before the earliest alewives and blueback herring – the scouts – began to fight their way up his herring run. “It’s like it’s between you and the fish, your blood mashing with the fish’s blood.
