I agree with drsixty7. There is no substitute for actually doing, seeing and learning from others.
The youth of today learn more from YouTube than we ever learnt from books because it makes it visual and can show you other than in diagram form.
There are loads of vids that you can watch on your phone while fishing.

Hywel Morgan's videos are really good for me.

Chris, bring your pupil along to Elinor Social (along with yourself) and he'll learn a bit about a fishing and a pick up a few bad habits along the way.

Ha ha.

As explained earlier watching vids is out of the question as the home he is in has banned internet access but thank you for your thoughts.

Rod and Line by Arthur Ransome has been lent to the lad. The book is a bit fuddled daddy in places but houses some real gems. One of the main features for him is a chapter is written every two pages or thereabouts.
The Sotheby's guide by Jardine is the second book to be lent (I like that suggestion). If he survives the books then comes the casting practice!

Hi Im back, looks like you can down load it for free as a PDF or 6.49 on Amazon. Consider it bought. Very Happy

I know it's not a game book, but I'd recommend a book titled 'Cod' by Mark Kurlansky if you want to know the resources we are abusing.
