There is probably air trapped in the master cylinder. Try opening the bleeder on the slave cylinder just a very little bit, and pump the clutch pedal a couple times. Opening the bleeder slightly will give a little backpressure on the master and hopefully that will get the trapped air out. Most times, after the air is bled out of the master cylinder, you can open the bleeder on the slave and the fluid will feed through with just gravity.

Just be sure to keep the master cylinder full while you are bleeding the slave cylinder or you'll end up starting all over.
