hi mate. It is very important to tape joints at all times, half a day speying is a huge amount of casting. One failure could cost you the catch of a life time. The pressure on the joints when speying should not be under estimated
Experiance on Scottish Dee ,Tweed and Spey has proved this beyond any point in my opinion.
Hope this is of value.
