Default Epoxy Brand

I'm looking for a good epoxy brand that will dry clear and stay clear.

I made some Copper Johns using both Gorilla Glue and Loctite 5 minute epoxy and allowed 24 hours of cure time (I used both brands to test which would be best since both were very radily available). However upon use, flies made with both brands showed that the epoxy had turned a milky white color. I have since made more flies and added a coating of "hard as nails" polish. This seems to have solved the problem, but I'd like to have a good epoxy to use that doesn't require a second coat.

P.S. The water the flies were fished in was a class 2 stream (KY classifies streams 1-4 with 1 being cleanest and 4 being dirtiest). The water temp. was ~ 65 degrees.
