It looks like a helgramite - was it aquatic and did it have pinchers?

As a kid I have seen huge helgramites under stones scary looking things. That thing looks pretty harmless in comparison but the body configuration looks like a small version.

To imitate a helgramite pattern or even a stonefly would probably work.

good luck

Looks a lot like an aquatic beatle larvae to me. A Woolly Worm type of fly would imitate it.
