Trilene or palomar. Depends on what I am tying on to. If it is big I will use trilene if it is a small I will use the palomar.

If I use mono I use the trilene knot, if I am using fireline I use the knot on the fireline inside packaing.

I prefer these two knots, but when tying on a plain hook I use the snell knot

I use the Uni knot. I've used the trilene knot for years, but I feel the uni knot is stronger.

I have no idea, My grandfather mearly said this is how you tie a lure on and it has worked for me for over 30 years with no problems.

Palomar knot for everything. I have used the Clinch Knot like my father-in-law does, the Palomar is easier for me.

On super braids I use the palomar knot. On mono I use the Improved clinch Knot.

I do find it almost (ha ha) imposable to use the Palomar knot to tie a leader onto a swivel without cutting off the swivel or feeding the rod and reel through the loop of the knot.

the snell, uni, biminy twist, albrite and the nail knot are just few other knot I use.

I use a crawforwd figure 8 knot for mono, and a palomar for braid. And a uni-to-uni for joining sections of leaders. All I've ever needed!

I use a trilene know for mono, palomar for all non-mono. These knots both double up on the eye connection so they are strong. I never "break" at the eye with these knots.

I agree, I use a palomar about 98% of the time on everything. Just a tough knot.

Super braids will slip with this knot. If you want to join a Super braid line to a mono or Fluorocarbon leader use two nail knots. Tie the leader over the Super braid and the Super braid over the leader and slide (jam) them together. If you find the nail knot hard to tie, fly fishing shops have a tool for tieing nail knots and they come with a line clipper.
