My better half got me a subscription to Fly Fisherman for Valentines'. Nice gesture, but when the magazine came in the mail it was pretty well torn up, readable but definitely not anywhere near pristine condition. I'll get my magazines off the new stand if this is the best they can do. I get free professional trade magazines which come wrapped in a poly plastic that does an excellent job of protecting the magazine. I would think that when I had to pay for the magazine it would come in at least as good a condition.

Question: What magazines do you get and what condition are they in when they get to your house through the mail? Are any of the fly fishing subscription magazines mailed in the poly wrap?
