After researching a little more, I've seen it is also called a Seaguar Knot.


I use this one quite often. I found it on the Orvis website, where they termed it the "Orvis tippet knot" (surprise surprise). They show it being tied with hemostats, which makes it a little easier and you use less tippet material (as opposed to forming a loop big enough to pass your fingers through).

Uni to Uni knot is a good one to use. I used this knot for years bass fishing to attach clear mono leader to thin slick braid. As many of you know Braid can be very tough to hold knots so this one has no problems when connecting two sections of mono or fluoro together. Easier to tie than a traditional blood knot.

That gink and gasoline version of the blood knot is the best way to tye a blood knot that I've seen. Cuts tying more than in half. Love it. Thanx
Other than that knot i use a Tenkara one knot. Since I switched from the improved clinch, I haven't lost a single fish to a knot. Only line breaks. Which I can contribute to me becoming a better fisherman. THANX again for the help. This will cut making leaders in half.
