I have used the Nail Knot for tying my Leader Butt ends to the tip of my fly lines for over forty years but I have recently started using the Albright knot it seems that something is different in the formula of coatings on fly lines. They are very good and much improved but like FLGator mentioned they are slipping off under a good pull from a strong fish. I had this happen several times this past winter on Steelheads and now have refastened with Albright knots all my tips.
