The knot I prefer to use is the bristol knot without a Brimni twist. All of the guides I have seen online show the knot with a brimini included but i do not feel it is required.
a simple loop knot like a “rapala knot” would be suitable?

Edit: Thanks for the PM a double loop knot would be stronger.
