Tranny Line Leak

I have a question, I have a leak in one of my transmission lines, the one coming from the cooler to the pan. It is leaking right over the brace under the motor (can't think of the technical term!). It is a small crack in the line. Can this line be repaired or do i need to just go ahead and get a new line? Thanks in advance for everyones help.

Just to let anyone looking at this, i fixed it today. I took an 8" piece of steel brake line (3/8"), cut the bad piece out, fit the new piece in with compression fittings, wrapped the line with 3/8" heater hose where it lays on the motor brace and put everything back in. Fired that puppy up, NO LEAKS!!!!!!!! this was much better the buying awhole new tranny line, they average about $60.00 to $80.00 bucks and i spent $15.00.
