Yeah, taping is probably good advice although I don't always do it myself. Paraffin seems to hold things together quite nicely. I have however, had a couple of incidents with single handed rods when throwing vigorous roll-casts where the rod came apart. Did not break but came apart. With the increased force on spey rods I think taping is just cheap insurance. Thanks for the reminder.
