Hey I just wanted to get some opinions on what type of knot works well in the event of a broken rope mid-session? I am no boyscout, but I can manage to tie a good knot or two. Yesterday I had a rope break and I could not manage an adequate knot to prevent it from separating when engaging the pull. Ideas? I suppose a true splice is the ultimate, but I'm just focusing on method for getting by on the fly! Thanks for any input!

Double fishermans is my typical go to

edit..depending on the type of rope, a triple fishermans may be the best choice.

I use a square knot. It holds tight and is easy to remember as well as check that it is done right.
