Varacosa avara, a wolf spider, possibly. The leg banding is similar to a fishing spider, so is the pointed abdomen. The main visible difference is the eye position. In general, wolf spiders have a pair of big eyes on top of the head. Fishing spiders have a bit of a snout with the eyes facing forward and downwards (to see into water). We don’t see many pictures of this dpider, thank you for posting one.
