Default mystery nymph identity

I bought a few nymphs at a flyshop in Wyoming and I forgot what they are called. I know it's a funny name. I'll describe them first and then I'll post a picture. Somebody's bound to know what it is.

It looks like a prince nymph tied on a scud style hook, has a purple body with a tungsten bead head and black rubber legs. Goose biots in tail and behind head.

I'll try to remember to post a pic tomorrow

You're only limited by lack of imagination. Be creative, experiment.
