Senior Management has decreed that I shall clean the basement.

I have 50-80 (or somewhere around there) back issues of a variety of FF and related magazines (Fly Fisherman, Flyfishing (Amato), FR&R and Trout (TU) in various condition from very good to the cover is gone, but the stapling is intact. All of them are (roughly) from the period 1975-1992.

They all have the slight odor of having been stored untouched in a basement for the past 12 years, because they have been.

They have to go and are free to the first person who say they want them. I'll even pay the shipping because I don't want to monkey with COD and all that. But, along those lines, they'll be sent at the cheapest rate I can find and may or may not get to you before climate change kills us all.

Although I think they'll make it.

Post on this thread that you'll take them and then send me a PM with your name and address and I'll get them out to you, enhancing both your reading pleasure and my chances at domestic tranquility with one fell swoop.

My son is in college in Boston and has several FF friends who CRAVE fishing magazines to read. I'll take them if you still have them, he'll be so tickled to get them.

PM me if you still have them.

Very generous of you. One man's junk is another man's treasure as they say. I had the pleasure to clean up after the Jam last year and a good handful of older magazines were left behind by someone who brought them to be free for the taking. As they remained Sunday morning and no one else was around, I scooped them up and had several hours of pleasurable bathroom reading at no cost.

I thought I might have seen your name on the label. Thanks, do you need them back or am I just supposed to pay it forward?

I would go back and edit the mention of bathroom reading before paying it forward.

Dave,
I think I grabbed one or two as well. Thanks.

By all means keep 'em!
I subscribe to too many magazines and the last thing I need is to get more old ones back. Glad they got some more use - regardless of reading venue - bathroom or elsewhere.

Anyone reminded of the Seinfold episode where George tries to return a book he read in the bathroom?

That's what I had in mind when I noted they were already flagged.

Can't recall that one exactly, but how 'bout the one where Elaine borrowed Frank Castanza's "TV Guide" and reads it on the subway.

[Setting: Bookstore]

(George casually puts the large book he took into the bathroom with him on the shelf. A manager notices, and approaches him)

MANAGER: Excuse me, Sir. What are you doing?

GEORGE: (Acting innocent) I'm all set.

MANAGER: (Pointing) Did you take that book with you into the bathroom?

GEORGE: (Not sure what the answer should be) What do you want to hear?

(Scene ends)

[Setting: The Coffee shop]

(George and Jerry are at Monk's Coffee shop)

GEORGE: They made me buy it.. A hundred bucks this thing cost me. (Gesturing to the book) How dare they?! I got news for you, if it wasn't for the toilet, there would be no books.

JERRY: (Sarcastic) Yeah. I understand Guttenberg used to spend a lot of time in there.

GEORGE: They're selling coffee, bran muffins.. you're surrounded by reading material. It's entrapment!

JERRY: (Reading the cover of the book George was forced to buy) 'French Impressionist Paintings'?

GEORGE: I find the soothing pastorial images very conduc-

JERRY: (Cutting him off) Thank you very much.

GEORGE: Well, I'm gonna go back there later and return it when there's different people working..

* * *

[Setting: Bookstore]

(Jerry and George are at Brentano's. George is trying to return the book)

GEORGE: Yes, I, uh, I need to return this book.

CASHIER: (Puts the book's code into the computer) I'm sorry, we can't take this book back.

GEORGE: Why not?

CASHIER: It's been flagged.

GEORGE: (Confused) Flagged?

CASHIER: It's been in the bathroom.

GEORGE: It says that on the computer?

CASHIER: Please take it home. We don't want it near the other books.

GEORGE: (Outraged. Leaving) Well, you just lost a lot of business! Because I love to read!

(George storms out....

* * *

[Setting: The Coffee shop]

* * *

(Elaine has picked up George's book, and is now thumbing through it)

ELAINE: French impressionism. Oh, I love this. (Looking up at George) Now, what is the problem with this book?

GEORGE: Nothing.

ELAINE: How much do you want for it?

GEORGE: You know, I could let it go for.. say.. a hundred and twenty-five.

(Jerry has given up on Leo, and now rejoins Elaine and George at the booth)

JERRY: Leo's furious. (He stops in his tracks when he sees Elaine looking at George's book) What is that doing on the table?

GEORGE: (Wanting Elaine to take it off his hands, he tries to silence Jerry) Jerry, simmer down.

JERRY: (Pointing) I'm not eating anything in the vicinity of that book.

ELAINE: (Confused) What is wrong with this book?

GEORGE: Simmer!

JERRY: That book has been on a wild ride. George took it into the bathroom with him and-

ELAINE: (Cutting Jerry off, she stands up, trying to get away from the book. Yelling out) Alright! Everyone clear! Bio-hazard coming through! Clear! Clear!! (Runs

to the bathroom to wash her hands)

GEORGE: (The damage has been done. He is slightly angered at Jerry) May I ask, what do you read in the bathroom?

JERRY: I don't read in the bathroom.

GEORGE: Well, aren't you something?

* * *

[Setting: A homeless charity center]

(Geroge is trying to give the book to the homeless. He comes across Rebecca DeMornay - the same woman who confronted Elaine about her muffin stumps in

episode "The Muffin Tops")

REBECCA: (Gesturing tward the book) So, you want to donate this to charity?

GEORGE: Well, I assume there's some sort of write-off.

REBECCA: What's the value of the book?

GEORGE: Uh, about two hundred dollars, Miss DeMooney.

REBECCA: (Correcting. Stern) It's DeMornay. Rebecca DeMornay.

GEORGE: Oh.

REBECCA: (Opens the cover of the book) Oh, wait a second. (Certain) This book has been in the bathroom.

GEORGE: (Nervous) Wh-what are you talking about? That - that's rediculous.

REBECCA: It's been flagged. I know. I used to work in a Brentano's. Mister, we're trying to help the homeless heare - it's bad enough that we have some nut out

there trying to strap 'em to a rickshaw!

GEORGE: (Desperate to get rid of the book) Alright, I, I'll just take fifty. Do - do we have a deal?

REBECCA: Yeah, and here it is: You get your toilet book out of here, and I won't jump over this counter and punch you in the brain!

GEORGE: I could take it in merchandise..

REBECCA: (Threatening to hit him) Here I come..

(George grabs his book and runs for his life)

(Scene ends)

I received a very excited phone call last night from my son. He was absolutely floored by the box of magazines. His buddies have already scrounged several to read - he's making a 'lending list' to make sure he gets them back!

I can't tell you how excited he was to receive this extremely generous gift! He's going to read some then ship them to son#2 so he has reading material!

Again thank you - and my son said "I have years of fly fishing history in my hands - oh, and all the 'new' patterns to try".

My humble Thank you!
