The double blood is a simple variation on the common blood knot. One difference is it's used to tie on hooks rather than joining pieces of line together. Another is that the line passes through the hook eye twice receives 5 or 6 turns then passes through both loops initially created at the hook eye.   
  
 
"The Trilene Knot"

"Loop to Loop"   
sfbp i000036   
This one shows tying a loop and connecting to another loop. You can also connect nylon to braided loops using this method however braided loops of differing materials can be abrasive to each other

"The Sliding Stop Knot"   
sfbp i000038   
The sliding stop knot is used when an adjustable stop is required on the mainline for various reasons. If the distance between the terminal tackle and the float or ledger weight requires to be adjusted because of varying depths this is the knot to use. With a bit of gentle force it slides along the mainline yet still has enough grip to hold a float or ledger in place.   
  
"The Surgeons Knot"   
sfbp i000039   
The Surgeons knot is used for joining pieces of line together, however the drawing can be quite difficult to follow. If you manage to accomplish this remember to lubricate and pull on all four strands to tighten.
