For trout fishing - a plain old nail knot is hard to beat. The braided loops will spray when you false cast. Bad for dry fly fishing. My experience is that they also sink which makes it harder to mend properly.

As others reccomended you can leave a permanent butt section of 4-6 inches and tie a loop in it or blood knot new leaders to it.
