That bite sounds like some kind of a water spider bite. There are many
different species of "water spiders" that will give you one heck of a bite,
and they would crawl up a seine pole like that, as well. Thats not to say it
was a spider for sure, I'm just judging it on my experience with insect and
spider bites. Hope it didn't hurt too much, some of the water "bugs" can
really draw blood (ex. giant water beetles)
