Estonia is a state in the Baltic region of Northern Europe. It is bordered to the north by the Gulf of Finland, to the west by the Baltic Sea, to the south by Latvia and to the east by the Lake Peipsi and the Russian Federation. Across the Baltic Sea lies Sweden in the west and Finland in the north. The territory of Estonia covers 45,227 km2 (17,462 sq miles) and is influenced by a temperate seasonal climate. Estonia's land border with Latvia runs 267 kilometers; the Russian border runs 290 kilometers. Estonia lies between 57.3° and 59.5° N and 21.5° and 28.1° E. There is 3,794 kilometers (2,357 mi) of coastline marked by numerous bays, straits, and inlets. The number of islands and islets is estimated at some 1,500.

The major river is the Narva (or Narova) flowing into the Baltic Sea. Draining the Lake Peipsi, the river flows on the border of Estonia and Russia through the cities of Narva/Ivangorod and Narva-Jõesuu into Narva Bay. Though length of the river is only 77 km, by discharge it is the second largest river flowing into the Finnish Gulf. The river is dammed entering Narva and Ivangorod, forming the Narva Reservoir, which extends up to 38 km upstream.

Gone Fishin’ in Estonia
Fishing in Estonia, like elsewhere, is a matter of lie-telling, with the occasional grain of truth. Unlike in other regions, however, it is almost forbiddingly difficult to take part in the sport here without a good local connection. Ice-, spinning, net-, canepole fishing and even electric shock wire are all used to catch a variety of fresh and saltwater species in the country. But newcomers will find themselves with an empty creel if they don’t put in some advanced research...
