These remarkable spiders have very long legs with hairy tips which allow them to walk across the surface of the water.
Given their general legginess and spidery qualities I am glad that i have not seen them do this, as otherwise I would be
reluctant to ever go swimming anywhere near these animals. Mind you, with the gigantic freshwater crayfish that live
underneath the water where these occur, i am unsure if fishing spiders should be my major concern.
