There are several species of spiders of the genus Dolomedes, that are semi-aquatic. They go by a lot of common names, but are often called fishing spiders. They breathe air, but they can dive underneath the water, dragging a bubble of air with them. They have little hairs all over their bodies that are water repellent. They typically feed on various insects and larvae that live near the surface of the water, like mayflies and mosquitoes, so they're generally good to have around, but they can also feed on small fish, sometimes. Like most spiders, they will eat almost anything they can overpower.

Wrapped in all of the promises, that no one seems to keep.
