Default line to leader connection.

Just wanted some opinions on this connection. I have in the past just used a butt section attached to the fly line with a nail knot and then a Loop-to-Loop connection on the other end. Is there a "newer better" way of doing this where the line goes thru the guides better? I just bought a fly reel and spare spool with line on it and the previous owner has a loop in the end of the fly line. Looks rather large to go thru guides easily. By the way I will in this case be working on 6wt line, large trout, bass.
