The loop at the end of the flyline is to make switching leaders easier. If you tie a perfection or double surgeon's loop at the butt end of your leader, you can simply connect it to the flyline with a loop to loop connection. If the braided loop ever comes loose or off, you can replace it or simply attach the butt material of your leader with a nail knot.
