Why doesn't this work?

Just confused on what Im missing here, I feel like this should work?

Frog.cs
namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
{
    class Frog
    {
        public readonly int TongueLength;
        public readonly int ReactionTime;

        public Frog(int tongueLength, int reactionTime)
        {
            TongueLength = tongueLength;
            ReactionTime = reactionTime;
        }

        public bool EatFly(int distanceToFly)
        {
            return TongueLength >= distanceToFly;
        }

        public bool EatFly(int distanceToFly, int flyReactionTime)
        {
            bool EatFly = bool eatFly;

            if (TongueLength >= distanceToFly && flyReactionTime <= TongueLength)
            {
              eatFly = true;  
            } else 
            {
              eatFly = false; 
            }

            return eatFly;
        }
    }
}

Don't know what error you are getting but. I think there is a bug in this part of your code "bool EatFly = bool eatFly". Hope this helps. Otherwise, you will need to provide more details. In addition, all you really need is to "return TongueLength >= distanceToFly && flyReactionTime <= TongueLength" and get rid of all the other code. The rest of the code seems unnecessary.
