There is a trick that requires nothing more than the loop you already have on the end of your line. Feed your line through the loop to create a lasso. Place the lasso over the hoop in such a manner that pulling on the loop knot pulls the line in the same direction that the line is wound. I wish I knew of a video because it is easily shown; not so easily worded. Give it a go and I'll try to upload an image later.

Put the end through the center of the hoop, out the other side, under the standing line, throw a half-hitch around it. It may loosen a bit in the bag, but it will never tangle.
