Lymphoedema and angling - any ladies who fish on here?

I am currently recovering from my lumpectomy and snb and thinking ahead to when I start getting back to hobbies etc. I have found lots of info on here about good gloves to garden in but are there any ladies out there who enjoy angling? I am think about protecting my hands when handling fish hooks as occasionally you can jab yourself when putting one on the line or removing one from a fishy mouth. In addition, perch have a spiny fin on their backs that you have to be careful with as that can catch you too. Any recommendations as to good flexible gloves I can get that would protect my hands from such happenings would be welcome please. I can protect arms with long sleeves, it’s the hands I am worried about. Thank you
