Innovation is alive and well in the Great Lakes State. It’s where three lifelong sportsmen have launched Loxley Bowfishing, a new company that wants to provide archer-anglers with the gear and knowledge they need on the water.
“We founded Loxley Bowfishing to serve an under-served community,” said co-founder Jake Morris. “Traditionally, bowfishing falls somewhere between the two worlds of hunting and fishing. Fewer products are designed specifically for the sport, so you see a lot of improvised gear on the water.” Without the right gear, success is harder to achieve, and growing the sport becomes almost impossible.
The company’s co-founders – Jon Graves, Jake Morris, and Ryan Simmons – are avid outdoorsmen. They grew up fishing and hunting. In fact, the idea to start Loxley began while Simmons was competing in bowfishing tournaments. “Your hands really get torn up in a tournament. You’re constantly shooting and pulling in your line, which is hopefully stuck in a big carp,” he said. “All those repetitive motions and the weight of the line will make for sore and cut hands at the end of the day.”
Frustrated, Simmons began to search for a glove that he could wear while bowfishing. Despite testing numerous products on the market, none met his needs. Undeterred, he brought in his friend Jon Graves, a product engineer, to work on something new. After almost a year of multiple designs and revisions, they finally landed a winner.
Aptly named the Graves glove, Loxley’s flagship product is the first glove designed specifically for bowfishing. “It combines dexterity and protection with practical features for archer-anglers,” said Jon Graves. The Graves glove is available in multiple sizes and will be sold online through the company’s website.
The Loxley store will officially open in May 2019. Prospective customers can sign up on the Loxley Bowfishing website to be notified first and receive special offers. Until then, archer-anglers waiting to get out on the water can read content and articles on the company’s blog.

Fishing in a new area can be an extremely exciting venture, from spending time on the water to learning about where to fish and what to use to catch them. This experience can be even better when you're bowfishing. But what if you are completely new to the area and just don’t have time to figure it out where the fish are found? If you only have a day or two to go bowfishing, there is a very good chance that you could go home emptyhanded.
When it comes to bowfishing, the most important piece of gear for any outing is your bowfishing bow. And we’ve written about types of bows people use for bowfishing before. Unfortunately, many people do not have the money to go out and buy a brand new bowfishing setup. Fortunately, this isn’t a big problem because if you have an old hunting bow laying around, you can easily convert it into your new bowfishing bow!
When we founded Loxley Bowfishing, we had a simple mission: To advance the sport. Over the past two years, we’ve introduced new bowfishing gear and written numerous articles to help people discover the challenge and excitement of bowfishing. Now, we’re excited to announce the launch of our bowfishing charter finder on our website.
