Best part of his method No Spit!
I used to do the same, but have lost some monster trout over the years, then awhile back I was listening to an Orvis podcast where Tom Rosenbauer was talking about testing knots with some fancy $20k machine they have (it's used mostly for testing rod strenghs). His results were that the improved clinch not is not so improved, and he recommended using the basic clinch knot. YMMV!
