Those are usually perfection loops. https://www.netknots.com/fishing_knots/perfection-loop
You can also use a surgeons knot but they are bigger which might cause it to hang up if you pull it into the guides. It’s a bit easier to tie though. https://www.netknots.com/fishing_knots/surgeons-end-loop-1
I often will tie those with a blood knot to keep the profile really low. They are more difficult to tie but make it the smallest. https://www.netknots.com/fishing_knots/blood-knot
+1 on the blood knot. Practice makes it easier to tie over time.
Once I discovered the double uni-knot, I do not use a blood knot any more. I find the uni-knot to be an all-around better choice, especially for connecting fluoro to mono. The profile is almost exactly the same and I find it holds a little better.
The double uni is just so, so easy to tie as well. I use that, the normal uni knot, and a non-slip mono loop and that pretty much covers all my bases for knots
This is great. I’ll have to try that double uni. Truthfully I usually end up having to tie two or three blood knots before I get one that holds properly.
Thank you for your thorough, helpful response!
Keep the surgeon knot in mind though, just not for this. Surgeons is great for tying fly line to backing
LPT: dental floss works in the place of sewing thread for jobs where color matching isn't necessary. Floss is extremely strong and works well for leather and repairs where strength is needed. To tie off a seam, tie multiple end knots and add a tiny drop of super glue to that knot. Crazy strong.
