Loop Advice

This is my first question in the forum. I just purchased Rio Versa Tip 8 wt line for use in Salt. I'd like to add a loop to the fly line between the line and the tip; and also a loop to the end of each tip (to connect tip to leader). These are the options I know of. Would someone please offer advice as to the best method? Thanks

1) Nylon braided loop secured by two nail knots covered with zap a gap.
2) Double fly line over in loop and secure by two nail knots covered with zap a gap
3) Tie a 20 lb mono line with nail knot and then tie a non-slip loop knot to the end
4) Tie a simple surgeons knot in the fly line.

I'm fairly new to fly fishing and have learned alot by reading this forum. Thanks in advance for any help.
