I really like this knot for several reasons. It is strong, easy/quick to tie, and I can stop the knot before the hook eyelet for a more free action on a crank or I can tighten it to the hook eyelet as I do on my soft plastics. Here's the video.



I also use the Duncan loop, Works great tying braid, this is pretty much the only knot i use quick and easy...

for tying 2 lines together I use the uni knot which worked awesome for my tip ups on ice fishing, so cant go wrong with it in open water

I'll have to sit down with some rope to practice some of those, especially the loop knots.

I'm stuck in a rut, all I tie are the palomar and the double uni.

Of course...I should have known that. :)

Nonetheless...here's an illustration I just made of it before it's pulled tight.

Looks like a modified eye-crosser knot
Two stroke isn't enough, four strokes is way too many!! Image

Cool app out for IPhones as well. It's free....called Knot Wars. Show animation on how to tie all knots (there's a lot). Also shows knot strength in different types of line ( mono, braided, etc.) very useful.
