I like the improved Albright knot, very strong and has a small diameter for going through guides.

Cheers,

George

I use the blood knot, but don't use braid much.

An Alberto knot is smaller than the others mentioned and it is a great knot to use.

not sure how to explain it. its an old knot and what ive used for a long time. its hard for me in rough water and wind to tie it cause my eyeballs arent what they used to be. might look it up for a good diagram.
2 lines, pinch in middle, make 7-8 wraps and one side back thru. do the oppisite direction on other side. spit on it and suck it up. slowly

Netknots.com will show you as well as many other knots. The Alberto is smaller and easier to tie and it does not break. The Alberto is an improved Albright.
