Jon,

I like "fast and easy" too; but - when it comes to 100 percent knot strength - and 100 percent confidence, I still rely on the Huffnagle if I want to be totally IGFA legal. If I don't go IGFA legal, I prefer a Surgeon's knot tied with the doubled loop of a Bimini to the bite trace.

Now that's simple - but damned strong, especially if you go 3-through on the Surgeon's.

I use 80-pound Fluoro is I can get away with it; lighter if the poons require it.

Dan
