Hi John,
This is actually an Antlion and we believe the species may be
Vella americana based on images posted to BugGuide.  Additionally, BugGuide has a very nice quick description on the Myrmeleontidae (Antlion family) page that explains the visual differences between Antlions and Fishflies, as well as Dobsonflies and Owlflies.
