LITTLE FISHIE. English, Old or Triple Hornpipe (3/2 time). England, Northumberland. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Leitrim piper Brian McNamara finds the second part of this tune very similar to that of the hop jig "Do It Fair." The tune is played at a brisk pace, a bit slower than a reel.
