Voodoo Jigs are my go-to for Steelhead.  They have the strongest hooks out there from what I've found.

How do they hold up? Most of the ones I used to buy fall apart rather quickly.

  They hold up great.  I buy the painted 1/32oz jigs from them and tie on my own marabou, but I have purchased their pre-tied ones as well.  When I tie my own, I give the heads a quick coating of Helly Hansen Hard as Nails that I buy at Walgreens.  Adds an extra layer of protection when bouncing off the rocks in the river.

I'll have to try that, I paint my own jigs and the powder paint holds up well in the rocks. When I tied mine I used a water based epoxy on the thread.

I remember the first marabou jigs I ever used was in the early 60's.  The best ones were made by a company called Allens.  The head was shaped lightly triangular.  They were excellent jigs with fine sharp hooks.  My favourites were all black or yellow with a black stripe.  I think there were even black with a bright green stripe.  Pike would rip off some of the marabou.  Rubber was not used for jigs in those days but within a few years, jigs called "beetle bug" with a rubber body came out and I think they are still available.  I never had much luck with those jigs.  I think I still have a couple of Allens Marabou jigs.  Now a days, I make my own marabou jigs.  Marabou jigs work great....after they have been soaked in the water for a while.  The marabou is just long enough to cover the hook.  Even when motionless, the marabou fibers move in the water.
