A friend and I took an end-of-day trek down to Sandwich to do a little night-time fly fishing from the beach. The weather was warm and the sky clear but the wind was blowing out of the south something terrible making it difficult to back haul. Before dark I started off throwing a white Deceiver and was able to nab a little guy up against a jetty. After the sunset I threw on a black Deceiver and managed to nab the little guy in the photo below. That was it for the evening. My friend was blanked.
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.
