Use an albright knot on the leader to attach it to the twist knot loop in the main line..
Hope this helps..

A few to choose from:

Yucatan Knot - How to tie a Yucatan Knot

Bristol Knot - How to tie a Bristol Knot aka No Name Knot

and the one I use most,

Tying the Slim Beauty Knot | MidCurrent

I find the slim beauty is the neatest, but also the trickiest to tie with cold wet fingers! So sometimes while fishing I'll tie on a new leader with one of the first two, although I find them a bit chunky as you're putting all the turns in the heavier leader-line - the slim beauty seems to pass through the rings a lot smoother. I simply tie a bimini with a longer loop for this knot and substitute for the doubled-over length of line as shown in the video and it's also the knot I use for tying all my regular leaders when not using a bimini.

make sure the loop is 18 inches and then use a double grinner - keep it simple!
