Jake: Welcome to the forum and getting back into fly fishing! You are correct, the loop on the end of the line will connect to the leader. Most commercially sold tapered leaders have a loop on the butt end, just thread that over the loop on the line and then insert the end of the leader through the line loop and tighten everything up and your ready to tie a section of tippet to the end of the leader. The nice thing with this is that it makes changing out the leader very easy.
