DSCF7788 Dolomedes tenebrosus - a "fishing spider"

My husband said "Bring a bug camera downstairs. There's a BIG spider in my workshop". Neither of us has ever seen such a large spider. Thanks to the members of bugguide.net for the ID. Here's some good info: http://ento.psu.edu/extension/factsheets/fishing-spider
