We’ve officially reached July. Can you believe it? Congratulations to all of you who’ve survived the first half of this wild year.
While tons of things have happened in the world, we’re not here to discuss current events unless it’s bowfishing-related. Instead, we wanted to catch you up on all the exciting new bowfishing gear that we’ve released since 2020 began.
Over the past six months, we’ve launched 7 new products! Challenge yourself and see if you can name them all. If you can’t, don’t worry. It’s easy to have missed one of our new product introductions while juggling work and new routines and prepping for the season.
Since summer has arrived and the holiday weekend is fast approaching, now is a great time for a mid-year bowfishing gear round up. Keep reading to see everything Loxley Bowfishing has introduced in 2020. You might see a few favorites you already own and a few items to add to your shopping list.
Let’s jump right in!
When we introduced our original Graves Glove in 2019, the reviews were raving. But one piece of feedback we heard over and over was “I wish these were full-fingered.” We listened and the Graves Full Finger Bowfishing Glove made its grand debut in May 2020.
This dry-fit performance t-shirt was unveiled at the Birch Run Hunting and Fishing Show that we attended back in February. Initially planned to be a limited run item, it was a runaway hit both at the show and among our Facebook fans so we added it the Loxley website for all archer-anglers to enjoy.
For those who loved the look of the t-shirt but wanted to stick it on their boat, trailer, truck or tackle box, we created the I Hunt Goldfish sticker. Measuring 5x5 inches, you can slap this bad boy anywhere and show the world your love for the sport.
Another Birch Run Hunt and Fish Show introduction, the Bandit Bowfishing Neck Gaiter, launched in February. Lightweight and breathable, it will keep the bugs off your neck at night and protect you from the sun during daylight hours.
For those who prefer a more subtle look but still want to show off their bowfishing pride, check out the Bowfishing Snapback Hat. Embroidered with the word BOWFISHING and the Loxley icon, it’s available in two classic colors. Choose from loden green with green meshback or gray with black meshback.
If you’re a proud member of Team Loxley, you can show your pride with this 15x4 inch Loxley Bowfishing sticker. Professionally designed and printed with clear vinyl, it’s the perfect size for adding to your boat or truck.
Last, but certainly not least, is our newest 2020 product. The Bowfishing Performance Hoodie is emblazoned with BOWFISHING in big and bold text and below that RELEASE | REEL | REPEAT in contrasting font, it’s the perfect way to keep warm on chilly mornings and nights and declare yourself a bowfishing fanatic.
Whew! As you can tell, it’s been a busy year for all of us at Loxley. And we’re not stopping. Stay tuned because we’ve got even more awesome bowfishing gear coming in the next few months. And let us know what YOU want us to work on next by leaving a comment below with your must-have gear picks.

Bowfishing is a great way to spend quality time with your bow each summer. It’s also a good workout and fun way to spend time with your friends. Before heading to the lake or river with hopes of filling your boat with carp, ask yourself: Just what will you do with all those dead fish? Craft a plan to use the fish you shoot productively.
Legal fish species vary depending on where you are in the country. Some of the most common freshwater fish shot are bighead carp, common carp, grass carp, catfish, buffalo and several varieties of gar, including the massive alligator gar. Many of these fall under the category of rough (or trash) fish. Rough fish are those fish which fall outside of the category of sport fish. They are species not commonly eaten and are often invasive species. Because they are not typically targeted by fishermen, bowfishing is a very good means of population control and removal of these often undesirable fish.
To help you get started, we have compiled a quick list of every US state and whether or not bowfishing is legal, some of the rules, and what you should be aware of. We've also included links to each state's fish and game or department of natural resources website for more information. So let’s get started!
The needs of every archer-angler are different, which means every boat those archer-anglers build for bowfishing is going to be different. One particularly hot topic amongst bowfisherman is lights. This article is a quick guide to finding your perfect light setup.
