Cool UK video here on fishing buzzers (aka Chironomids) when trout are slurping at/near the surface. I first saw this video last winter and adopted the "fast hand/twist" retrieve with long pauses demonstrated here and can attest to its effectiveness - especially on Cutts which really like to chase. My typical set-up for this kind of fishing is a #14 Rickards Callibaetis Nymph on point with a Shipmans Buzzer on the dropper (about 3 ft apart) on a floating line. Give it a shot next time you see porpoise rises and can't get a consistent response.
