dragonfly nymph?

Observation - dragonfly nymph? - UK and Ireland. Description: Is this a dragonfly nymph? and if so, is something wrong with it as it seemed 'fuzzy' - maybe covered in fungus, or maybe some sort of pond algae. Sorry the photo is so poor - I couldn't get my camera to focus beyond the water surface.
