Default Which knots do you typically use ?

Good day to All,

I happened to read & print out the Thread that the Full Creel ( Steve ) put out on the Duncan/Uni-knot.
I have never used this particular knot, but will give it a try next time I'm out. Since there are a lot of knots
to use for various situations I was wondering what combination any of you use consistantly ?

Let's say for connecting a 8-10lb leader to your butt section :
- Do you like a Double Surgeons knot?
- Or do you like a Blood knot ?
- Or something else ?

How about the tippet being connected to that leader ?
- Do you again use a Double Surgeons knot ?
- Or do you like the Blood knot ?

I also have one of those Knot Tyers from Orvis on my vest all the time ( a gift from a very good friend ) &
use it all the time, but mostly for the Clinch, Double Surgeons & Nail knots. Do you use a tool or tie them
by hand ?
