Nail Knotted Loop ?

I tried the Thread Loop (just winding thread around the fly line to hold a loop) and didnt like its bulkiness...

When I tied 2 nail knots with 12lb mono on the end of the fly line it holds a loop really well and presents a very small image.... seems very strong too..

Problem: the loop is off center... I am afraid that after casting the off center loop will make for a poor leader landing... I believe the tightening of the second nail knot is the culprit...

Is there a way to make the Nail Knot Loop straight ?

Thank you.
