I have just purchased artificial fins and would like to know the best way to attach them to the fish. There were no directions.

Hot glue to hold in place, then fill in the gap with apoxie sculpt. You may have to trim the fin to custom fit it the way you want to.


Exactly what I do and quick...

The advice Cecil gives is exactly what I do. It is quick and rock solid after the epoxy sets and cures. I have not found any "superglues" that seem to stick well to fins and hold them as quickly. Even 90 sec. epoxy takes longer and is more expensive.


Wow I must be moving up in the world!
