Hunting spiders like the jumping spider, the lynx spider and the wolf spider do not use webs to catch prey. The wolf spider only uses silk for furnishing its hiding and breeding place. It uses its perfect eyesite and speed to hunt and catch its prey. It also lays down a "lifeline" so when it falls it can climb back up.

I kept a wolf spider as a "pet" when I was little - although I was scared to death of her. She spun a kind of nest, but did not need it to catch prey, she just pounced on it and bit.
I let her go free after about a year, but I had got very good at catching flies for her in that time! I know she was a "her" because she laid eggs - the little blighters hatched too.

I think they are funnel weavers. Their web look like a little tornado. They hide in the back of it waiting for lunch. They spin a web because that is how they get their food.
