In this video, I tie the Mega Prince, which bares little resemblance to its predecessor. This is both a great trout and steelhead pattern, plus you can be creative and modify the Mega Prince with your favorite colors. This is a fun fly to both tie and fish, thus as I say in the video, have fun with this one!

That's a good question, and I prefer to use contrasting colors (i.e. black and fluorescent chartreuse) during off-color situations.  The purple color sounds appealing, depending on what effect you're going for.

Did this with a white or red tail with legs the same color for panfish in the ponds around here. Also did a purple tag instead of the wire to keep the weight off.
