    I use to use it back in my climbing days and now use it for streamer fishing, great knot strength and low profile, simple to tie too

    Hi!

    Yes, after some time using the perfect loop, I switched to the double 8. That's for big fluoro tippet for tarpon and it makes the job very well. The fly is perfectly aligned and the loop size can be adjusted, and ultimately it seems it can't get loose or break.

    And the correct name is a double fisherman's knot or noeud double pêcheur, I believe.
