CLOSED: Spider Near Water

Mesa, AZ

I found this spider near the side of the pool today. I flicked it and it actually fell/walked down into the side of the pool. It was under water for at least a few minutes before it slowly started to walk its' way back up to the top, against the side of the pool the entire time.

Any idea what this is?

It's a fishing spider in the family Pisauridae, likely Dolomedes triton - http://www.spiders.us/species/dolomedes-triton/

Looks spot on to me! Thanks again, this place is just an awesome resource!!!
