Default Re: How to Tie the Basic Clinch Knot

With the basic clinch, the number of turns that you make makes all the difference. And that may be anywhere from 2 1/2 to 10 wraps depending on the amount of flex in the material
Fortunately you can feel the resistance in the mono when it's time to stop.
If this is done right and it seats tight, the knot will not slip. And if there's no slip, there's no need for any "improvement".
And if there's no need for the "improvement" then you should not do it as it can only hinder you from pulling the knot tight in the first place

Now that you mentioned it though, twisting the loop rather than wrapping the tag never worked for me and this may work out to be the same thing....or worse. Time for more experimentation
