Stan, I've never considered it myself. Some knots & hook eye type it makes a difference in how to tie the knot, but otherwise, never considered it. I use a no slip loop knot a lot with flies & lures and don't think it matters.
One thing I do check is that the hook eye is completely closed & that there are no burr's at the eye. These "problems" will lose a fish in a heart beat.
I've seen the line get in that small opening in a hook eye & break the line or slip thru it. Same with a burr, I had some hooks that all had a small burr left from how the hook eye was formed in the manufacturing process. It was sharp & would break the line. I think they were Matzuo hooks I had, but not sure of that. These are two things I look for when buying hooks now.
