Maine: snow and sun-drenched playground called vacationland. Here in Maine are some of the most productive fishing waters in the U.S. A. More than 2.500 lakes, ponds, streams and brooks - seventeen million acres of rich hunting and fishing grounds for the nimrod.

For the fresh-water enthusiast, nothing can compare with the smallmouth bass found in Maine's lakes, ponds and rivers. In a picture-book setting of crystal-clear waters which mirror tall, stately pine, spruce and birch trees, the salmon, trout and bass grow to phenomenal size and in great numbers.

This is the fishing and hunting country which knows no "off' season. All this plus a magnificent coastline for salt-water angling addicts with picturesque open waters, bays and inlets for the man who thrills to cruising or sailing ... 2500 miles of seacoast with a never ending variety of fascinating scenes.
