            TongueLength = tongueLength;
        }

        public EatFly(int distanceToFly)
        {
            int distance = distanceToFly - TongueLength;
            bool reach = distance <= 0;
            if (distance)
            {

Close, but I see two issues:

  • you forgot to indicate the return type (bool) in the declaration of the method
  • the keywords "true" and "false" should be all lower-case

Also, you don't need to test a Boolean, you can make the code more compact by returning it directly:

            return reach;

And to make the code even more compact, you could perform all the calculations on the return line and skip creating any variables.
