This will keep it from becoming a big mess on the outside of things when it's on. If you get any excess exposed use alcohol to clean it off before it sets.
I would also recommend putting the butt on dry first and then mask off just above. As soon as the glued butt is applied you can take off the tape and there won't be as big a mess to clean up on the rod if extra epoxy oozes out. Leave a tag of tape sticking up so it will be easier to get off.
