Question Which knot do you use ???

For those of you that use streamers, especially ones that let's say are on the larger end, how do you attach your fly to the line ?

- Clinch knot, or equivalent ?
- Mono Slip knot, or some variation ?

I've been tying some larger end streamers this winter, some are tube flies as well & wondered what success any of you have had using the Mono-Slip knot ?

Does it hold well ? Working in engineering for many years it does seem that depending on a loop of fishing line thru a hook eye seems to be an easy method of breaking your line. Am I right, or wrong ?

For years I've just used the clinch, but I have been reading about the Mono-Slip & how it makes the fly swim more life-like.

What have you found, or what works for you ?
