    Looks exactly like a hellgrammite ( dobsonfly) to me....and not much larger! I've found some as along as 5". I published an article in Rod and Reel way back in the 80's about my pattern.

    Don't let it land on you, those hooks look like it could take a big bite out of you. But you only have to worry if you went to China.
