Double up the loops for even more holding power (just don't expect to untie it once a load has been set) - often used for climbing.

Place a figure 8 knot between the two fisherman's knots and you have a bombproof knot. Commonly used in climbing to join two ropes together. Can join ropes of unequal diameters.

I'm a star scout and if you have one long rope and short rope, just pull them apart and they come out easily.

I didn't think that it was that difficult to untie, but that was me, and there are a lot of stupid people out there.

It claims to be called "Fiskerknute" in Norwegian.
I do disagree, as "knute" is a very negative term when it comes to knotting.
The correct term in Norwegian should be:

It would depend on the load you have applied to the knot. I have seen fishermen knots that looked like they fused themselves to the rope. I have only seen this during belay and testing seminars. Normally you can roll the knot in between your hands to get this type of knot to loosen up. You shouldn't have much trouble trying to untie this knot if the load is not too significant.

I find the double fishing knot is a very stong and easy learnt knot. i was fishing today for example. and caught a 9 pond trout with this knot. and it held the load perfect

This knot is much used by commercial fisherman, in cordage of such
size and taking such loads that Andrew's lack of stupidity will
not make much difference re untying it!
The knot is quite efficient in terms of material, and it well
resists abrasion in how it presents paired parts to surfaces.
Also, the ends emerge along the loaded parts which not only puts
them away from snagging by makes for easy securing by
either tucking through the rope's lay (if soft or mod.firmly
or by taping or securing in some other means.
Stiff ropes might benefit more by a Double Fisherman's Knot.
