I was there from '68 - '69, on the DMZ as well. The guys had to run the trucks all night to keep them from freezing up. But one thing I learned was that the Korean people could imitate anything so...

Good advise here. One other thing; don't be afraid to cut the fly off the hook if it doesn't look like something that will fish. I made the mistake of accepting everything I tied and just moved on....
