About AMS Bowfishing
AMS Bowfishing has enjoyed 17 years as an independent company that ships bowfishing equipment world-wide. Almost all of AMS Bowfishing products are made and manufactured in the USA and shipped from Stratford, Wisconsin.
AMS Bowfishing opened the Stratford, WI operation in 1997 and is owned by Jeff and Cindy (LaSee) Braun. Cindy is the daughter of Jack LaSee, who designed and patented the original Retriever® reel for bowfishing, when Cindy was just a child.
The inception of an Industry Icon.
Growing up on a rural Marshfield, Wisconsin farm, Jack LaSee was taught at an early age how to work, how to improvise, and how to make things with his hands with what was available. In pursuit of a passion to enhance the sport of bowfishing, he went to his machine shop, All Metal Stamping, Inc. in Abbotsford, WI over 30 years ago and built the first prototype of the “Retriever®” bowfishing reel.
“I remember the day clearly when Dad came home, sat us all down, and asked us to help him name this “thing” that he had created. He pulled out a silver boxy contraption with a dark plastic bottle that was actually my sisters shampoo bottle, and a strange looking crank and called it a bowfishing reel. “What does it do?” We asked? “It retrieves fish and arrows after you shoot them in the water, so they can’t swim away with your arrow.” He replied. “But, I need a name for it”, “Call it the Retriever®.” I said with very little marketing experience at age 6. That night around our family dinner table an industry icon was born and the Retriever® as we know it came to life.” Cindy LaSee Braun
