Brake line leak help

Hi All,
This is for a 2003 V6 Mustang.

Around 3 years back, I had replaced the front drivers brake line that connects the brake hose (caliper) and the master cylinder. All was good until recently that I noticed a drop in the reservoir which is due to a leak right at the connection of the brake line and the brake hose. I tightened it a bit but it still leaks. Then I loosened it by a quarter turn and tightened it again. It still leaks. Maybe even worse now. Any help or pointers would be appreciated.

Frequently the flare lip on steel brake lines will stress crack. The fix it replace the line or re-do the double flare on the original line.
