Your letter to the bugman: This bug had large pincers at the front, legs on his front half and moved like someone dancing the worm. It was about an inch long and very aggressive. If provoked it would curl up back on itself.

Dear C. McCarthy
Was it found near or in water? It looks to us like an aquatic beetle larva, commonly called a Water Tiger.
Yes, it was near a small pond. Thanks for the quick positive identification, it helped solve a little debate with the family 🙂
