I had no luck catching anything beause I forgot all but one fly at home. Nymphs would have been ideal. Although, I made friends with a very nice 16'' salmon who I named Sam. I almost stepped on Sam and he kept me company. For two hours he stayed no more then several feet away from me. He even let me touch him without swimming away. It was theraputic since I saw no other fish that day.
The ranking score is used to determine how "popular" a trip or location is. It is calculated based off of a weighted average of the number of reviews and the user ratings. For example, a trip with 2 reviews and an average rating of 5 will have a lower "ranking score" than one with 10 reviews and an average rating of 4. This is because even though the first trip has a better average rating, it has not been reviewed as much as the second trip, so it is not as "popular". In the future we may modify the ranking score to take in additional factors, such as the number of views, comments, and photos.
