I primarily fish from my belly boat(still have trouble with the trees along the river). I use a lot of dry flies with some sort of emerger trailing it. I have always use a WF floating line. For that situation is that the best choice for line or would I want some sort of sinking line?

No, you would never want to use any sort of sinking line if you intend to cast dry flies with a trailing emerger. The sinking line would pull dry fly under. If you are having trouble getting the emerger to sink buy, or tie, them with little brass or silver beadheads or tie them with .010" lead wire on the hook shank.
