For mono I use the Trilene knot, excellent knot strength in my opinion. For Fireline I use the Palomar knot which is recommended.

Check out the North American Fishing Club t.v show or website, they are comparing all kinds of different knots tied with mono, fluoro and braid in a tournament type thing....knots are tested by directly comparing the strength....a few knots I had known nothing about have fared pretty well....can't remember the names now Tounge Out.....but its called knot wars.

Trilene Knot is what I have been using for 20 years and have never lost a fish due to the knot. I can even pull my boat around using the knot when I have a snag. I have pulled trees off the bottom and held on to 20 pound chins in the pike river in current with 20 pound test braid. I don't think you can beat either the Trilene or the polymer.....

Double Palomar for use with PP or SW, trilene for mono. Double Palomar is a tuff knot, something like 95% or 97%.

Palomar for fireline and braided lines, trilene knot for mono & flourocarbon lines.

Once you learn the palomar (spelling?), it is the quickest and easiest knot to tie (with a large enough eyelet on your bait.)
