I use a about a 3 to 1 mix of fish meal to non rising flour. Get my meal in 50 lb bags and mix with 17 lbs of flour.

While I haven't made any, I've heard that red clay will hold it together pretty well too. Don't know the proportions though.

50% fish meal and 50% dry clay add water and mix. We have also used pluff mud instead of clay. Tomorrow is opening day!
