Get some Fresh Fetching Glue from a Archery shop that has a good stock rotation.
Also make sure area is clean free from old glue...

Try using Goat Tuff glue.  This should solve your problem.

I concur...re-fletch sounds like the trick. Make sure you wipe the shaft sown with 90% alcohol before gluing!
