Russia With Kamchatka to the ???
Russia With Kamchatka to the ???

A question for the well traveled fly fisher…or adventurer sans rod? Why in so many websites when one queries ‘Western Russia Fly Fishing’ do 99% of the sites refer to Kamchatka as Western Russia? Now if I look at a map, I would deem Western Russia to abut the Ukraine, Belarus, Finland etc. and Kamchatka to be to the extreme far East. Perhaps I am missing something here, where some line of demarcation exists that determines when the geography flips and East becomes West. So, when I have tried to research fly fishing opportunities, I have found a site or two for Ponoi and waters near Finland…otherwise…the compass uncontrollably spins.
