If it's not a mega dollar rod that you want to be perfect, you can use polyurethane and spar varnish. Here's an article from a rod builder that became sensitized to epoxy and had to switch to varnishes or quit building. If you just want to finish the wraps to get your rod back to fishable condition at a small cost just get a half pint of gloss clear polyurethane at Lowes /Home Depot or your fav hardware store. Use about 5 coats with an artists brush. Don't apply too much at a time and sit and rotate your rod by hand until the poly is set enough not to slump. http://www.davelewisflyrods.com/varnish/varnish.html
