Spinning fly problem

I've been fishing with a lot of surface patterns recently. Poppers, gurglers, boobies etc. Whatever I do design-wise I eventually end up with so much twist in the tippet it bunches up like a tangled spring. I never had this problem with larger poppers on saltwater flies. Slowing down the cast would probably help a bit but a tight loop is needed when your trying to punch the popper through a 2 foot "hole" in overhanging branches. Anyone else experience this - any other suggestions? Maybe certain leader materials are more susceptible than others? Or maybe they make a swivel small and light enough to not adversely affect delivery & presentation?
When sight fishing, look over your shoulder from time to time, you never know who's behind you
