I had a similar experience last trip in cold weather. A bitter wind sucked my body temperature down while change into fishing gear by the time i got to tying my streamer fly on i had the shakes and could not tie a loop knot i have tied thousands of times before. I finally just tied in on with a forceps tied knot that was strong but did not allow the fly the same freedom of movement. Once i got all zipped in with wind break hats and gloves i warmed up enough to enjoy fishing.

I always enjoy your articles.
