I'll put up some photos of the finished rod once it can be handled and I can get some good light - which is not in abundance here this time of the year.

I'm a new comer to rod making and bamboo has captured me; in fact I'm so new I'm still accumulating the tools needed, reading as much as I can to understand exactly what is done in what order along with trying to grasp the details.
However, there are so many great threads in this place and this one is no exception. A brilliant result too. But I'm a little puzzled, are the completed section dipped entirely, even the guides and ferrules or are they taped? If not, why not? If they are taped, when is the tape removed, after drying or while still wet?
