what are u guys and gals usind for your glue

and also what do you recomend for fish clay,i only do about 10 fish a year and some of the products come in 25 pound bags,will this stuff go bad,or do i need to use something that comes in smaller weights

thanks a lot for any help,

I use Wallmart Latex caulking

not because it's cheap (about 99 cents a tube) but because it works well. There really is no latex in it but or it would curdle when it makes contact with my borax soaks skins but it does work well. No latex listed in the ingredients either. Imagine that.

I use the white fish clay in the McKenzie catalog. Yes its a large quantity, and it will take you a while to use it up, but it's realtively cheap and as long as you seal it good after use, you can keep it indefinitely.

thanks cecil

Also remember your clay will last longer refrigerated (and sealed well).
