Established in 1999 in Denver, Colorado
David Ahn always dreamed of revolutionizing the fly fishing industry. He dreamed of a way to make fly fishing easier and less tiring. So in the early 1990s, he developed of an idea to integrate a solid titanium wire into fly rods to make casting easier. He theorized that the flexible quality of titanium would allow for the rod to bend more with the equal energy exertion someone would use on a regular fly rod. In the late 1990s, my father solidified the idea that would become the world's first titanium fly rod-in 1999, he founded ADG Titanium Fly Rods™ and did the worldwide product launch at the 1999 International World Expo. Years later, he would secure the first US patent of a titanium fly fishing rod.
Today, we offer premium fishing products that will enhance our customers' fishing experiences by introducing a more lightweight, flexible, and funner fly rod. We are a family run business based in Denver, Colorado.
Why our technology makes your life easier
Today's market is saturated with regular graphite rods that offer slight sensitivity and finite flexibility. It's time for a change.
A result of 20 years of research and development, ADG Titanium Fly Rods boast Titan™Technology, which converts potential energy into kinetic energy. The titanium wires that wrap around the graphite core amplify the amount of energy you put into casting, making your casts much smoother, effortless, and enjoyable. The titanium wires also allow for an unprecedented amount of flexibility and forgiveness when battling tougher fish-the rod can bend 180 degrees without breaking.
The technology in ADG rods also allows for greater sensitivity when battling for a fish-you get to experience more of the fight. Take your new ADG rod to either saltwater or freshwater. Our product was designed to battle in both terrains our customers have found great success in both environments.
And the best part is that you don't need extensive experience to use our rods effectively-just cast and our rod will teach you.

What others have been saying about our rods
"I picked up a 5 wt and immediately was casting 20 feet farther than with the other brand. Wow! I tried the 5, then I moved to a 7/8. What control, what distance, what sensitivity!"
"ADG's 9 ft 5 wt Titan fly rod is the best fly rod I have ever used in 35 years of fly fishing. The titanium gives this rod a feel like no other. The smooth yet powerful action makes casting effortless.
"I believe ADG has made a significant development that will surely elevate fly fishing to a new level of performance and enjoyment."
"I purchased my TF 804-4 Titan rod at the FFF Southern Council Conclave in Mountain Home Ark last Oct 2006. I have caught 145 white bass, 18 largemouth, 7 smallmouth, 10 Guadalupe bass, and 3 Smallmouth Buffalo since 2007!"
"As I have said before, these rods allow me to focus on catching more and bigger fish due to their ease of casting, accuracy and durability."

"The 7/8 and 8/9 are excellent for salmon fishing. They are powerful but also sensitive so you always have good feeling about what's going on at the other end. These rods beat big salmon easily and my feeling is that the fish never has a chance against the rod. Yet its sensitivity gives an entertaining fight against arctic char and trout."
"The tip of the ADG was the most impressive of all. It had plenty of spunk to quickly set on a hit whether I was chuck and ducking with very heavy weight or swing with a 7 wt weight forward line. The strength and power in the butt section was unbelievable and the tip section bent just enough to absorb the hard runs. I have always used a Loomis Concurrent 9 wt 10 foot rod on all of my prior salmon experiences, but to my delight the short ADG Titanium Fly Rod had even more power when side pressure was applied…Last spring I hooked 7 Steelhead and landed all 7 in a Lake Erie tributary with this amazing rod. What fly rod and what a memory! Kudos to David Ahn and his engineering design in this short fly rod."
