Hello Larry,
    An excellent easy to use field guide to British ferns is "The
Illustrated Field Guide to Ferns and Allied Plants of the Bristih Isles" by
Clive Jermy and Josephine Camus publiashed by the British History Museum in
1991.  There are good illustrations by Peter Edwards with good information
on comparisons between species that are similar. There are illustrations of
the stipe scale details for the Dryopteris.  BPS editor James Merryweather
also has a very easy to use field guide for begiiners called "The Fern
Guide" printed by the Field Studies Council.  For a more in depth analysis
you might want to find Christopher Page's "The Ferns of Britian and Ireland"
published by Cambridge University Press in 1982.
    Add a good 10X to 20X hands lens and you are in business!  There is even
a toy microscope made by the Intel company that plugs into your computer
with 10X, 60X, and 200X settings with which you can take photos.  They
orrignally sold for US$60 but can be found on e-Bay for less sometimes.
