    I'm surprised there aren't more "loop" knots voted for.

    There's been much mention of the Davy Knot, but not much reported experience with it. Let me jump this off by mentioning that in my experience (on very light tippet) that unless VERY CAREFULLY tied, the Davy Knot can come loose quite easily.
    I use the davy knot almost all the time, I've never had it slip on 3x and 4x tippet. If I am using a topper/dripper setup I use a davy/improved clinch/davy to tie it all together.

    Sometimes I will use superglue on my knots, especially if I have a pattern that is really catching fish and I'm down to my last fly of that type and I have plenty of fishing time left. But glue or no glue they don't slip on me, maybe the way I tie it?
