    Finished mine up this morning. It is a new pattern to me, but a really fun tie and I like the way that it turned out. I'll ship them off Monday.

    I absolutely did....I use TP instead of kleenex so I always have a roll on my desk. It was the only white background I had handy. I'm impressed by you recognition of it based on the embossing. I'll send you a 5 pack of those flies if you guess the brand correctly.

    I'll be tying mine this weekend. Decided to go with a different pattern - epoxy bodied for a translucent shine.
