A Question For You Knot Folks

I have always doubled over my line when tying any of the knots I typically use. This goes for clinch knots and nail knots and everything in between. I fish big flies and long lines and like to know I have maximum line strength in my knots.

I would like to try loops for my flies so as to let them have a bit more action but I have yet to find a knot that will form a loop but still have double line going through the eye (as well as comprising the knot). I tried a Duncan Loop and it ties beautifully with the doubled over line but as soon as it's tightened, it gets cockeyed because part of the line is slipping through the kot and part of it isn't.

Any ideas? Thanks.
