Full color 7 1/4" x 10 3/4" ad that celebrates 100 Years in America as well as reminding us that few things go better with Fishing than an Ice-Cold Beer. There are two drawings in this ad, one shows two men from one hundred years ago peacefully fishing in a stream by a waterwheel and the other shows a more modern time with two men floating in a wooden boat and one man netting a fish while the other admires his technique and his luck. The text starts talking about the lure of fishing and what has always made it appeal to the sportsman. These magical moments have been unchanged, just like the "loyal preference for Miller High Life".
