The best way to find blues licks, IMO anyways, is to listen to the blues and work with the ones you hear to make them your own. If you are looking for blues licks then I'm going to assume you already listen to the blues so I don't have to suggest anything.

P.S. If your really desperate for one right away then the very first lick of "Since I've Been Loving You - Led Zeppelin" is a great one.

I always liked the lick for "I don't need no doctor" Originally a ray charles song but a lot of people have covered it since then; Buddy Guy, Mayer, bb king, Scofield...

Theres loads of blues licks in the 'blues licks thread' in the blues and jazz section which is in the Bands part of the forum.

Personal fave:
