Owner description: Hello and welcome to Florida Keys Shallow Water Flats Fishing. Are you ready to fish the gin clear flats of Islamorada, Key Largo and the Everglades in the Florida Keys? Come on down! I'm an amicable and patient guide who will work hard to make your day on the water a success. I have lived and fished in the Keys for over 30 years and have been guiding fisherman just like you on the flats of the Florida Keys for over 20 of those years. Whether you choose to fish for tailing bonefish and redfish or giant tarpon, I assure you an enjoyable, interesting and exciting day in the Florida Keys. Though I primarily sight fish for these gamefish, we can fish for easier targets as well if your skills are not as high as your expectations. For the novice fisherman, I'll provide friendly fly fishing or light spinning tackle instruction. For the accomplished angler I can help to fine tune your casting skills. Expert? Our game fish should provide quite the thrill and challenge you're looking for.

My wife and I chartered Capt. Barry during our recent trip to the keys and it was a great experience. I have taken several other guides in past years and it was not nearly as fun as this trip. Capt Barry is kind, patient, and an excellent teacher. He works hard to put you on fish and never gives up... More

Barry, Reference our trips with you May 27 and 28th: Despite the tough winds and two West Virginians proving to all present that we were out of our element, we had an outstanding experience.

Captain Barry took me and my two boys, ages 7 and 11, out fishing. He was a great guide and shared a lot of knowledge and tips with us. He took us to a great redfish spot where we some many tailing, but we just weren't skilled or lucky enough to land one. So, we headed to some easier fishing... More

On a recent family vacation my two young sons and I were able to slip away from the rest of the family for a trip with Captain Barry Hoffman from Flats Guide Service. Before the trip even began Barry was very accommodating to us. Based on the weather forecast, I was concerned about the possibility of bad weather. Barry offered... More

I spent a couple of days fly-fishing for redfish with Barry. He is the hardest working guide I have ever known and a pleasure to spend time with. He put me on dozens of fish, worked with me on my casting, and exposed me to the beautiful backcountry of Florida Bay. His calm, affable nature guarantees an enjoyable day of... More

My son and I fished with Barry earlier this week in the most challenging conditions the weather could deliver, and Barry put us on tarpon on the ocean side and a variety of fish in the back country. We had a great time. Barry is an excellent teacher - he made quick adjustments to our fly and spin casting techniques... More

I can't say enough good things about Capt. Barry Hoffman. Although conditions were not ideal, Barry put my wife and me in position for several good shots at cruising tarpon. Even though my excitement overwhelmed my casting ability, Barry stayed patient and very up beat. He gently coached us on what we could do better on the next one, each... More
