Half the challenge would be attempting to tie a micro nymph! 

I have also been wondering what type of survival rate you could expect
from hooking a darter. It may not be as traumatic to the darter as you
might first think. Depending on where the darter was hooked, how big it
was, use of a barbless hook, how fast it could be transferred, etc., it
may be less detrimental to the darter than being tossed around in a net
half full of gravel from kicking up a riffle.

Obviously this is all speculation with a number of variables involved, it
may however be something worth looking into as an alternative collecting
method, at least for large hardy species such as Logperch.

I will have to confess, I have eaten pickled carp. It actually was not
too bad however I could definately tell it was not Walleye or Trout.
