Barrel knot.

A cleaner knot in this application is the poacher's knot (strangle snare)

Grog also refers to a variation called the Scaffold Knot which has an extra turn - looks more secure as stated by Grog.

(I'm assuming the OP wants to connect the rope end to an eyelet in the hook or to a carabiner. The barrel knot leaves the tail in a way that can interfere with the hook/carabiner [although that pic doesn't show the barrel knot attached to anything])
