It could of been an elusive Moobidy floop... They only appear when they see people with bad memory no camera and horrible judgment of space, time, and size... Bro, We need more info to tell you such as area you where in, time, size (more detail), color, and images if posible.

Check out "hellgramite" (larval stage) and "dobson fly" on BugGuide.net. I lived in PA along the Delaware river and what you described brought back memories of the scary critters!
