Default Knots

Do you have a specific knot that you like to use when attaching your hook, lure, spinner, etc., to your line? Is there one knot that is just so secure that you won't use anything else?

I used to use the double knots because it was the only knot I know. But I learn from this thread in this forum that the clinch knot is the way to go. It's simpler but stronger.

I have used different types of knots, but I always come back to the clinch knot as well. It has served me well and I rarely lose anything.

I use my own variation of a clinch knot. The only difference in the way I tie it compared to others is that I go through the hook's eyelet twice to ensure the knot won't slip. When I finish off the knot, I go through the double loop in the eyelet.
