Copy of Our Story

Loxley Bowfishing was founded by a group of outdoorsmen seeking to advance the sport of bowfishing. We provide archer-anglers with the gear and knowledge needed, so you can experience more success on the water. We are committed to serving archer-anglers today and preserving the sport for future generations.

Loxley was created by lifelong outdoorsmen. The brand, and its founders, respect the outdoor traditions from our past, but they are determined to make a new tradition for the next generation of outdoors men and women. Each Loxley product is created to solve the problems that archer-anglers face. The educational content is produced to inspire and encourage participation in the sport.

Fish Story
Ryan shot a nice carp but, unfortunately, the line came off the arrow (a major fail). This lively fish kept swimming away with the arrow still in it. Without hesitation, Ray dove into the water and caught the would-be escapee with his bare hands.
