    Looks more like a water bug of some sort to me. :confused:

    Wrong shape.

    It is some sort of arachnid (has 8 legs, I think water spiders only have 6), but I'm not really sure what exactly. could be a wolf spider, they are pretty common

    It actually looks pretty close to a daddy long legs. Maybe they're closely related.

    In my area daddy long legs refers exclusively to harvestmen spiders. Not crane flies. Sorry for the confusion.
