I found this gorgeous spider in an out building about a week ago (April 2015). At first I assumed it was some type of Wolf Spider, but further research has me now believing that it might be a Fishing Spider instead. It was rather large in size and was patient enough to allow me to get a few quick photos before it raced off to find cover. I’m also assuming it’s a female. I’m a huge bug fan and love your website! Thanks for what you do!

Dear Bug Geek,
We love your images of a Fishing Spider in the genus
Dolomedes.  Many years ago, Daniel had a photography exhibit at the college in Shepherdstown.
