The knot tied in the top video was always called a fishermen's knot when I was taught as a kid and we still refere to it as such.

Sitting in my shanty; staring through the ice
I am just an angler here, of my own device
And on my seat so comfy I'm fishing for a feast
And I will not leave this place until I finally catch the beast

I can get 14 pairs of reading glasses at the dollar store for that price   ;D

Glasses, no matter how good or strong they are, will never bring your eyesight back to what it used to be. You'll see...or not. ;) Besides, why carry 14 pair of reading glasses in your tackle box when you can have 1 of these tools?  ;D

It was also called improved clinch knot, and was the first good fishing knot I ever learned when I was a kid and I still use it sometimes. http://www.animatedknots.com/improvedclinch/index.php

My eyes and the Palomar knot work well together.
Palomar knot all the way for me, it wonít slip and will stay on top of a jig fished horizontally. Otherwise improved clinch/fishermanís knot. The problem with the clinch is that it can slip under heavy pressure/tight drag, Iíve had a few uncurl on very large lake trout this year and then is when I switched to the Palomar with no issues.

I have never heard of a improved clinch knot slipping? Were you using one of the really slick super braid lines? I have never had one slip with mono. If it slipped with mono it wasnít tyed correctly. I believe I have heard of it slipping with a super braid line though. I now mainly use the Palomar knot also, especially with braid.

all I know is if you use fiskas or other similar horizontals it shows right on the package the knot to use for them which is a surgeon loop knot.very similar to the rapala knot ive been using.

I have found also with some really small ice jigs, that it is almost impossible to double the line through the eye, making the Palomar impossible to tye.

Neither had I, fluorocarbon, took my time, moistened knot...but it happened. I tie this knot all the time usually with no issue but big fish can find your weakest link. Never had this issue before but it cost me several big fish. Maybe it was a vertical thing with heavy pressure, never had the problem surfcasting for big fish. Still I feel safer using the Palomar jigging for lake trout. The Palomar knot is very strong and has out performed the clinch in break tests. I still use the clinch (swivel)but at my jig head I want the strongest knot as this is where the most pressure is applied when fighting the fish.
