For braid to mono:  a Uni knot

For mono to swivel or lure: the Rapala knot, essentially an improved clinch knot

For braid to lure or swivel:  the Palamar knot

To make a loop at the end of the line, I double the line, make two overhand knots and tighten up.  I’m not even sure it’s an “approved” knot, but for the few times I use it, it has not failed.

I’ve tied dropper knots, but always have to look it up to remember how to do it.  I don’t fish that way often enough to remember it, and if I was in a boat and couldn’t check, I’d probably just tie a line off a swivel to make the dropper. 

My father in law  used three overhand knots to tie his lure to his line; I never saw him lose a fish from a bad knot.
