Agree with Chris and Clyde, on flies I always use improved clinch or palomar because they are easy and seem to hold down tight with lrg # test 40 or 50# that flies require. On all other hooks/lighter lines I use the no name knot or as some call it (after berkly stole it) the Berkley knot great for smaller hooks and never fails if tied correctly! All of these are fast and easy!
