The StoneFly Team has been migrating around the country to fly fish, further our  involvement in fly fishing and conservation projects and share our wines from Napa and Russian River Valleys.

Tie One On!One of the things that has uncorked a minor frenzy amongst fly fishers is the StoneFly Vineyards WINE CORK. These corks, pictured at right are emblazened with the slogan “Tie one on!”

What is starting to happen is that people are re-using our corks for all sorts of purposes: fly rod handles, head cement applicators, safe hook removers, fly drying stands etc…etc…

Do you have an innovative use for StoneFly wine corks? If so feel free to post a response to this blog article and post a picture.

And for the first three  legitimate submissions using a StoneFly cork we’ll extend our appreciation by in return sending you some vino. Note: please don’t just send in a cork with a fly hooked into it.  Step it up a notch!

Please send your note and picture to nickp@stoneflyvineyards.com and include a short description of how your quirky cork innovations are used to further your fly fishing addiction.

Let’s have some fun with this!

Thanks from Team StoneFly
