How long does it take to get flies in Animal Crossing?
Note that there is a chance for this to occur — it's not guaranteed to happen immediately. One strategy to find the Fly is to simply leave the trash outside a location you often pass by and just wait until eventually the fly appears. This could take a couple hours or days until you finally spot one though.
