Climbed like a fish (6)


I believe the answer is:


I believe this clue is a double definition.

'climbed' is the first definition.
(scaling is a kind of climbing)

'like a fish?' is the second definition.
(I've seen this before)

(Other definitions for scaled that I've seen before include "like a snake" , "Climbed; flaked off" , "(Of a body) covered with thin horny plates" , "Climbed, or removed fish flakes" , "Weighed" .)

I've seen this clue in The Globe and Mail.
