    The knot almost looks as easy as the uni-to-uni knot I tie a fc leader to braid.
    May try it.

    Thats the San Diego Knot and or RP knot as I have been explained a few years back? Yet I bet it has many names.
    Learned on the Sport boat the San Diego. And yes, its an amazing knot. Too simple and yet extremely strong. Use it all the time for fly lined thin senkos at V.

    Great knot- checks all the boxes. Easy to tie, strong, and small. Best knot especially if knot will be passing through the guides.

    I stoped using the RP and went to the FG for two reasons....the line doesn't double over itself which makes it thiner and the tag end of the mono is pointed toward the reel and won't get caught on the eyes during casting. Even after using the FG for an extended period and becoming adept at tying,even on the shore in the dark, I realized i was having more problems wth the FG than it was worth... lost fish....so i went back to the RP. Simple and strong. I fold the mono leader back over the knot to expose the tag line and trim with clippers as close as possible to get rid of the nub. Ive even thought about a drop of super glue on the tag end but i forget to get some everytime im in Walmart ...lol

    Tony Pena knot is what I use for my braid to whatever connection and improved clinch knot for hooks or swivels.

    I started practicing the JC knot when you first made this post. Clumsy at first, but now it’s easy and so small
