Default Name this knot

This is the knot I'm using to tie flourocarbon to a hook or lure. A pro bass fisherman on YouTube demonstrated it and said it retains something like 90% of the line strength. He didn't give a name for it.

Here are step-by-step pictures. Sorry about the dirty finger nails. I had been doing yard work earlier that day.

Some explanation is in order:

Picture 1. Double-up the line and go through the eyelet and form a loop.

Picture 2. Pinch the loop with left index/thumb, stretch out the hook with right pinky, then wrap the doubled-up loop end around the drawn out loop a total of three times.

Picture 3. The doubled-up loop end is in between my right index finger and thumb. My left index finger and thumb are still pinching the spot on the loop from 1.

Picture 4. Thread the doubled-up loop end through the little loop you're maintaining with your left index finger and thumb.

Picture 5. Pull on the three ends.

Picture 6. Lube with some enzyme fortified knot solution (spit) and pull everything tight.

Lastly, trim off the excess line.

I don't know the name if this knot. Do you?

Don't know the name of that one. Seems the Palomar Knot is easier and stronger. http://www.animatedknots.com/palomar/index.php

X 10,000 I was just getting ready to recommend the palomar knot, looks less complicated than that one.

I think I'll stick with the palomar as well. Much easier.

Palomar is a great knot once you learn how to manage that tag end. What a pain!

Palomar knot is super easy to tie. I agree. But this pro, Shaw Grigsby, specifically mentions that the Palomar knot isn't the best to use with flourocarbon due to its brittleness.

I snell hooks with fluorocarbon. It is easy if you buy a tool to help.

The one Shaw ties in the video is just a double line uni knot.
