This miniature shotgun is one of a pair of matched custom Purdy creations presented to King George V in 1935 on the occasion of his Silver Jubilee. They fired ammo made by Eley-Kynoch, barely a half-inch long and loaded with 1.62 grains of E.C. powder and 2.02 grains of dust shot. The monarch is said to have used them to kill moths.
Kevin Baker of Burnet, Texas, landed these two lunkers (largemouth bass) caught on Inks Lake this past Thursday, February 9th, 2012. One was 9lbs. 6oz, the other 10lbs. even. Both fish caught within an hour of each other. Kevin appreciated the assistance of the TxPWD team in getting the fish weighed on a certified scale and safely releasing back in the lake.
