The improved clinch knot, to me, is the '57 Chevy of knots. Although there are sleeker and stronger knots, this one is the classic. The improved clinch works well with both monofilament and flourocarbon when properly tied, seated and tightened. It does not test a strong as some other knots, but many pros favor it because they can ties it quickly and more consistently than other, more complicated knots.
