For regular trout fishing, I join tippet to leader with a double surgeons knot and fly to leader with the Orvis knot. For steelhead and salmon, I use a swivel between the leader and tippet and favor the palomar and trilene knots for connections to swivel or fly.

For small streams.. 6lb mono with a nail knot from fly line with a perfection loop on the end for loop to loop. I love the nail knot, if tied correctly it's a beautiful thing. I tie my own leaders before I head out with blood knots/perfection loops. For fly attachment, the polymer knot/clinch is nice for drys.. easy to tie, very high breaking strength. I use duncans loop for streamers and nymphing, gives the fly some action.

All a cinch to tie with practice just always remember and I can't stress this enough.. use spit or water when finishing the knot. Lost way too many fish when eager to switch flies/tippets and forgot to lube up.

idk if there is another name for the knot that i tie for a line to line connection but i call it a double uni knot, i never have problems with it. ive had like 4-5 double uni knots in my leader before because i ran out of tippet on the stream, worked well for the few hours i used it. as for tippet to fly, clinch knot.
