Hi, You can use either of these knots.... The 'Clinch' or 'Improved Clinch' to attach swivel to mono.
You could also use the 'Uni Knot' which people tend to use for hooks. Google any of these and you'll figure out how to tie them.
I don't recommend you use the Surgeons knot with mono, it tends to be a quick fix knot on a rocking boat if you're using braid and need to make a quick loop.

Hi, I use a surgeons loops for linking my swivels to my mono / braid line all the time (Double surgeons loop for mono & for braid I loop it 5 times, as anything less will slip), I also use it to link my hooks to my mono / fluoro leader, as this gives me a chance to interchange hook sizes quickly while fishing, rather than making new rigs everytime.

It is a safe knot & have not had a single one slip even with a 15kg fish on the line.

However its not to be used to connect 2 different lines where the knot will pass through your rod guides.

regards,
Keyur
